Inklust #16: I don't want another factory

If a factory is torn down but the rationality which produced it is left standing, then that rationality will simply produce another factory.
— Donella Meadows, Thinking in Systems: A Primer

To transform, it isn't enough to just undo what we've done. We have to tear out the very roots of how we think. Our deepest beliefs are so insidious, so difficult to divide from our very selves, that we have to remake that decision every day: Plough, sow, tear out the old ideas that so readily strangle what's only a seed today, the birth of your tomorrow self. We have to garden our minds with vigilance.
