(A few thoughts from a continuing work relevant to creatives here).
Creativity cannot be separated from Freedom; it is the source of it and the result of it. Share it, encourage it, understand it.
Creativity allows people to think in new ways that both liberates and maintains liberty. The creative can dream around problems, finding new solutions when none were apparent. The creative are harder to constrain by despots, as they have the tools to out-think oppressors. The hopeful tyrants cannot face down dreams they know nothing about.
The despot worries in his throne room, heart racing. Someone is out there who can find solutions, communicate in new ways, invent new treasons. The despot fears you and doesn’t even know your name.
Creativity strengthens the people that treasure it. Society is stronger for the news ideas the creative people bring. The imaginative see dead ideas and infuse them with new life, resurrecting the lost things of value. Creative people can see the foundations of society and connect them to their innovations, joining past and present, the new and the renewed.
A single shining inspiration in your mind and old ideas come alive, history is connected, and you can see how ancient thoughts and new dreams come together. Centuries and aeons link together in new strengths and old wisdom.
Creativity strengthens relations among people allowing them to support each other. The creative are open to new relations among people because they can dream. The creative find new connections among people, building alliances that resist tyranny. The creative discover new ways to understand others and cooperate in ways unforeseen. A web of connections and associations and alliances makes people all the more resilient.
Those that create are your allies, and a single conversation can create a year’s worth of dreams. A moment’s pause lets you see everyone new. You reach out to make new friends easy. What tyrant doesn’t fear a web of collaborators who can out-dream them?
Creativity should be encouraged and shared among people. To arm people with creativity is to give them tools to find meaning and protect themselves and others. To share with other people builds connections and camaraderie, creating alliances that maintain the society. The sharing and encouragement of creativity is a measure of the strength of society.
Once someone lifted you up and said you could create. Now you can reach out to others, teach them to use their creativity. Each person so encouraged is an ally and a beacon. Connection spreads from the outstretched hand.
Creativity is the result of freedom. Because new thoughts can come to mind, the unthinkable becomes possible. As old ideas can be seen anew, the foundations of society are renewed. Because new ideas are encouraged, society can change and evolve. As people encourage creativity, alliances are built.
