Well, of course you are free to take action.
With or against the conditions you find…
which you deem… whatever they are.
As nearly natural phenomenon so to say;
To advance into territories of relevance.
It’s your choice. Your responsibility, really.
I guess, to blend in or not to blend in.
It pains me to think there is no other way.
