" Superior ≠ Superiority "

“People who look down on other people don’t end up being looked up to”
Robert Half

The Demitasse Players, now a repertory theatrical troupe, is committed to presenting original plays and psychronic movies to improve our mental health and view of our fellow humanity. To be achieved by writing and presenting stories that address the frailties of our slow evolving emotional and psychological anthropology. Our troupe is committed to assisting humanity in distress by expanding our audience’s radius of thinking in the hope of opening minds to a superior way of dealing with our fellow humanity, free of taking a superior view of ourselves.

“The superior person is the eyes for the blind, strength for the weak, and a shield for the defenseless. They stand erect by bending above the fallen, and rise by lifting others”
Robert G. Ingersoll

The core values of our troupe is manifested in our work that promotes a superior way of thinking; that is opposed to the superiority attitude of thinking often manifested in such poor adolescent behaviors as bragging rights and looking down upon others. What we should never lose sight of, we all share in the reality of our morbidity and mortality of our existence. In essence, one’s zip code is not a defense against this reality nor determines one’s intelligence or health. Taking a superior view of one’s self to a degree is a denial, diversion and fear of our mortality.

“The way of a superior man is threefold: virtuous, he is free from anxieties; wise, he is free from perplexities; bold, he is free from fear”

The following story, performed by Susan Bond, is a true conversation I encountered a few years ago at a social ritual. Please note, the story is not an endorsement of unionism; nor a condemnation of capitalism. They are simply isms used as a means to illustrate how isms, embraced on face value may compromise one’s thinking, and often times lead to elitist thinking, a false sense of superiority, and parental narcissism. Yes the frail human condition. I will now direct to the link "The Cocktail Party" to share this true life story.
