True Blues

True Blues

Once there was a group which said blue is green. But the overwhelming majority of people said blue is red. Naturally the Greens were persecuted hideously. But they persisted and resisted heroically. Many magnificent stories were told about Green greatness and nobility.

But another group said blue is blue. The Blues were further divided into two: the activists and the passivists.

The activists spoke up for themselves -- politely but forcefully -- and fought back against the Red-dominated society as much as they properly and profitably could. And they undoubtably suffered a bit for this. This is because they were a small but consistent irritant, and pain in the rear, to the majority Reds.

But mostly the activist Blues lived quietly, and pretty much got along with everybody -- even the advocates of considerable falsity and depravity. The Blue activists were truly heroic and noble. They ended up living the lives of greatest success and happiness.

The passivist Blues -- on the other hand -- lived very quietly, and got along with absolutely everybody. But they inevitably compromised themselves a bit by their passivity and quietude. Often they were seen as cowardly and dishonest. And many Reds and Greens essentially didn't see them at all.

But those that did -- including the activist Blues -- regarded them with a certain contempt. The passivists basically lived good lives of real prosperity and contentment -- but not dynamism and joy.

Ultimately, the activist Blues won out. They came to dominate the culture and the world. But they were truly happy long before then.
