Upon reflecting about the nature of politics, war, greed, and the unbounded possibilities of sheer human ignorance I have decided, once again, that human civilization is nothing but a cruel joke perpetrated on a less than semi-intelligent naked ape by a universe that may at any moment lose interest and sterilize the planet. The main problem I believe is that we have gone and taken ourselves far too seriously. Arrogant men and women strut around in thousand dollar suits showing off hundred dollar haircuts expounding on a whole manner of societal woes trying to convince everyone that some bogeyman is hiding under all our beds.
The God's honest truth is that 99% of the crap we worry about will be forgotten in hundred years. When all is said in done the best that we can hope to accomplish is that when we pass on we will have made enough of an impact on people and the planet that we will be remembered in a positive light. In that mysterious and scary future no will give a damn about how big your house was, how many cars you owned, and sure as Hell few if any will think twice of the money you left behind.
Those that people will want to remember will be the ones that clothed the needy, saw that children were fed, took care of the sick, and otherwise sought to alleviate the fear and suffering that plagues this world. In the end its just a question of which side we will take. Do we grovel in fears and prejudices scared that every knock at the door is someone out to take our precious material items or do we reach out to others and make an effort to build a place for every man, women, and child on the planet. It isn't an easy quest and primal, self destructive animal fears are rooted deep in our DNA but every once and a while good guys do win. Lets just hope we have time.
