Tunnel Visions

This was no ordinary tunnel. There were warning signs of course as you approached, rather indicators giving pause. “Biggest best tunnel ever.” “You can’t resist.” “Only right-minded people here.” “Better than the good old-fashioned days.” But nothing could quite prepare anyone to go around, skip on past, to do anything but drive towards the next sign. By then though, it was too late for most as the pull of the tunnel sucked them in. At this point they nearly fully just obediently looked towards the others heading to the tunnel, and steered onward into the shaft; convincing themselves of their own free will the entire while. Then an almost magical thing happened, upon entering a tunnel such as this they become no longer aware of the tunnel. They decide that the tunnel is everything and any one and anything outside must be nothing. You could call it, even, magical-thinking maybe. I wonder if they will ever escape? That tunnel goes nowhere, until boring onward crashes into all of our homes.

    This is what power seekers want and independent minds need to circumvent.
