A Life Well Lived?

In Season 02, Episode 02 of Rick and Morty, we see Morty play the game Roy: A Life Well Lived. (You can watch the video at the end of this post)

In the game, Morty playing as Roy seems to make conservative decisions about his life, he’s scared to take risks, break rules, go after his passion, or as Rick does, “go off the grid”.

What’s even sadder is that even when faced with a life-threatening disease like cancer, Morty as Roy goes back to the carpet store which he clearly never wanted to initially work in.

This makes you wonder if are we programmed by society or it’s in our DNA to play by the rules, stay in our own lanes and not go against the flow of things.

Whether the difference between Rick and Morty is something to be taught or you’re born with remains to be known.

So which one of the two actually deserve the title of “A Life Well Lived”? I’ll leave that one to you as the reader to decide.
