Stilts

It seems strange now, studying cultural fetishes of the past. I wondered, how did a whole society decide to wear that thing? How did that become a symbol of power? I thought about that the day stilts became illegal, except for those of rank. Stilts can now only be worn by Lobbyists, Lawmakers, and the President. If a person of rank is seated, you may only address them while kneeling. Your eye line must never be equal to theirs, that’s the rational, and for now, it works. But one day, I imagine a revolution of hatchets and saws will come.
