Why do we love children so much? Why do we admire them? Why do we feel they are better than any adult? Why do we see them so perfectly complete and innocent?
They have no sense of censorship. Whatever they do, they do not analyse consequences, they do not care that they are seen naked, they manifest their joy when they are truly happy, they splash water because it’s fun and don’t feel guilty for getting somebody else wet, they hit and kick whatever is in their way when they have an angry or violent fit, they throw away without remorse things they no longer need, they fall asleep sitting when they are tired, they refuse to watch a cartoon they dislike… They have a certain freedom that derives from non-censorship that we (at most) envy, as we can no longer experience. They are as honest as human beings can ever be!
