Look, I'm nothing great. I know my faults, and I know my strengths, and I know my weaknesses. I've had plenty of years to become intimately aware of who I am. If anyone wants to take me to task for something, fine. I welcome it. I'm an adult and I can handle it.
But seriously - what the hell is wrong with people? Doesn't have to be anything specific - just in general. Where did we, as a species, go wrong? My faith in natural selection is wavering. I see plenty of people doing wonderful things for others every day, but all it takes is one dumbass to make it all seem so futile. What are the future civilizations going to find when they dig us up years from now? Will we still be around? Or maybe evolution has something in store for us. Will Charlton Heston be running around in a loincloth around apes again?
I try to make it through my life without screwing over or causing pain to other people. Why is that such a difficult concept for some people? Were parents just randomly dropping babies on their heads a lot more this century? Is life really just a contest to see who can collect the most stuff?
I can filter out stupidity on a daily basis, it's not that hard to do. But does anyone else ever just get the urge to walk up to someone and smack them? Or shake them until they look at you with that vacant stare?
Like so many other things in life, there probably isn't an answer. But it felt good to say.
I've earned coffee.
