“A gadfly is a person who upsets the status quo by posing upsetting or novel questions.” (Wikipedia)
Plato first used the term to describe Socrates.
I want to be one of those.
Except that people tend to swat gadflies. Or make them drink poison. Or run them out of town.
I want everybody to like and approve of me. Which is an unrealistic expectation in this line of work.
Three morals in this story,
1. Society is a horse that sometimes must be goaded to move.
2. Gadfly is a noble profession.
3. But a lot of them are martyred in the end.
Yours with creativity and imagination,
