Locked to Locks

Locks stunt the growth of civilization. They inhibit trust and integrity. Others are hindered by their existence and pinned down by their exclusion. Only those with the right pattern, the right make, the right look, will be allowed to pass. Locks are the sieves of stereotypes and with-holders of acceptance. Some keys may unlock multiple locks, but others may not gain entry to any. Locks may decide the rights to access and ownership, defining property, but they are the assumption of man's innate evil.
A world without locks would be a world with trust. Locks are the assumption of the worse. Chaining a bike to a pole is the assumption of theft. One who locks his door at night is expecting the worst in others. Yet, to not lock one's door is foolhardy. In a world of children who do not look past the moral ambiguity of robbery, one is alone. This world is not yet mature.
Thus locks.
