Just a Symptom references the hope we place in ultimate goals and ideals that are part of our cultural conditioning. Think Cinderella’s savior-prince, abs of steel, 36-24-36, winning the lottery, granite countertops. Why do we set paradigms of achievement and worth on a pedestal and pay homage to standards of perfection? Is it a self-indulgent fantasy or a symptom of a greater need that both propels us into action and paralyzes us with inertia?
