A Touch of Madness

I think it’s safe to say that usually the creative and intelligent walk a fine line between genius and insanity, if not occasionally crossing that line. Sometimes I get the feeling that society doesn’t like the peculiar nature of the creative and intelligent, that we need to be “dealt with” somehow.

Your challenge: write a segment or two detailing a measure taken by society to restrain the creative and intelligent. Make it outlandish, make it subtle; tell it from a general perspective, or tell it from a personal point of view. Do whatever works.

Keepin mind, y’gotta month. Plenty of time, I’d say. Have at it!

And remember: good luck, Godspeed, “Force be with you,” feliz navidad, etc., etc., etc.
