A principled stance

“I finally did it. I finally threw the TV set out of the window. Finally, we are free”

“Dad, it’s a plush toy. Are you ever going to tire of symbolically throwing it away, only to unceremoniously retrieve it minutes later?”

“It’s the principle of the thing. We have to remind ourselves that we are free to throw away the machines, and not the other way around”

“So if I were to throw out this smartphone…”

“Whoa there. Slow down. That’s a different principle”

“Okay then. But you’re making dinner”


“My favoritest principle of them all”
