"People are setting fires to get rid of whomever they dislike from personal enemies to anyone who looks or sounds foreign or racially. Different people are setting fires because they are frustrated angry hopeless they have no power to improve their lives but they have the power to make others even more miserable and the only way to prove to yourself you have our his to use it according to octavia all of these issues. All of these ignorance is came from one fundamental human paradox. That human beings are intelligent but also that they are hierarchy coal and that their hierarchical tendencies are a lot older than their intelligence and are the hierarchical tendencies are sometimes in charge. When we do seem sometimes much more interested in one upping each other one upping one country over the other than in Doing ourselves some long term. Good in other words. It's all about power. One of the reasons. I got into writing about power was because i grew up feeling. I didn't have any and neither did fifteen year. Old lauryn ole amina the protagonist in the story but she quickly realized that no one in power was going to protect her. If she was going to survive she'd have to step into her own. Parable of the sower was difficult. Because i didn't much like my character originally because she had to be a power seeker. I had gotten the idea from some of the politicians. I'd run across the top people who wanted power not have it couldn't really be trusted with it and i had a character here who wanted power and i had to bring myself to realize that power like money like education like technology like any number of other things is just a tool and what you do with it. Is what matters octavius character. Lauren knew that because she needed power. She needed people. There's power in numbers power in community. She was a preacher's daughter and saw her father's ability to bring people together through religion so she began to preach not her father's religion but her own a new religion she called. I am her seat. Anyone can be someday. I think will be a lot of us. I think to seed ourselves farther and farther from this dike place earthy is based on the idea that survive in a changing uncertain world. You need to be able to adapt. You need to be resilient. Lauren wrote her convictions into verse and realized that in these verses were lessons that people could live by. She realized she had found a leader herself. When i got through parable of the sower. I got to the point where i liked my character. Far too much. Lauren amina became the first power seeker. Butler could finally trust and others did too. She slowly grew a following of people willing to join her in the pursuit for a new life. A new beginning lauren. Or you're old amina this adolescent young adult. It's really i think butler's belief system and the things that she live by. And she's writing them out and she's offering them to us offerings on how to sustain yourself in an unsustainable world how to survive fascist governments how to survive wildfires how to survive drug epidemics. How to survive police brutality. How to survive poverty how to survive. You know the world that she's depicting a parable sewer feel so much like that's what we're experiencing now. I still can't read parable. The so i mean like i can't read it even just looking at the title just makes me nervous nervous. It set around. now we've got like corporate greed. We've got climate change. We've got you know the government falling apart. I mean do. I need to go there. Oh god it's just so it's too familiar. It's too familiar do you think. She saw herself as prophetic. Oh absolutely not. She did not predict the future. She observed what was happening around her and then she extrapolated from what she knew. Our hope not prophecy. Because i don't wanna live in that world. But i also think that some writers are onto something and they've they've Tapped into something. And i believe in mystical aspects. So i wouldn't call anyone a profit per se but i do think that that octavio was tapping into something. She was tapping into something and she was channeling. It and i think that it's okay to acknowledge that into here into here. That at the end of the day it might not really matter if octavia was all knowing or just paying attention. The point is that as dire as her imagined futures could be and as much as her work can feel a little too real especially right now. Both ianna n. nettie also see octavius. Work as a beacon of hope. She says she was a pessimist. But i think she was really a pragmatist. I think she was so pragmatic. The people called her pessimistic. But they're always these little kernels of hope in her writing. They're always this open ended. Possibility that even if things look bleak right where we're standing it's not magically all gonna get better but we're still going to be together we can still choose our family and our loved ones We can still shoes to do things that will add to our collective survival instead of just whatever is supposed to be our individual bounty of the things we've acquired in the things we've amassed That there is another way to be in. This world. Knows what i find so healing and so transformational..
