Once upon a time, a family decided to grow orange trees. After several years of hard work, the first oranges appeared. Every year after that, when the oranges appeared, the father would say, “Everyone is entitled to choose one orange from the crop.” The business thrived and expanded. The children were puzzled that even when the orange grove had grown, they were allowed only one orange a year. Finally, when there were grandchildren, one of them said, “Grandpa, every year we produce hundreds of thousands of oranges, and every year you tell us that we can have only one orange. Why is that?” Grandpa replied, “Because that’s the way it’s always been.” How is this story a metaphor for society?
