One thing

History provides us with numerous examples of people who were convinced that they were doing the right thing and committed terrible crimes because of it. Keep in mind that no one thinks of themselves as a villain, and few make decisions they think are wrong. A person may dislike their choice, but they will stand by it because, even in the worst circumstances, they believe it was the best available option to them at the time.

On its own, being a good person is no guarantee that you will act well, which brings us to the one protection we have against demagogues, tricksters and the madness of the crowds, and our surest guide through the uncertain shoals of life: clear and reasoned thinking. Logic will never fail you, unless you are unaware of—or deliberately ignore—the consequences of your deeds.

Ten-Second Lesson

Chemically, maniacally based on bullshit science, man playing god

We fuck ourselves again and again, ruining this harmonious globe with the egos

Of our money driven souls. Playing with fire, kids of life… ten seconds old in the galactic

Timeline, thinking we know better… teenage strife.  Humans are the adolescent dropouts

Of life, flipping burgers to pay for our fifteen bastards’ bread… arrogance running wild;

The twelve year old with daddy’s automatic pistol “oh, this looks cool!”

Life is not a ponzi scheme, we are not Bernie Madoff or the Amway heroes.

We are one in a symbiosis. Earth will be fine, once we kill ourselves, nature will carry on

Its trillions of years and humans will be reabsorbed into the energy en masse.

A ten second lesson, a breath in the galactic life.
