The Good Doctor tells me I shouldn't get so upset by what people think or do, but the problem is that those things affect my life. I mean, the things that upset me the most are people trying to steal my money and get up in my business all the time. I'm also frustrated by the fact that there are so many people in this world who do not have a proper sense of justice or rationality about them.
Consider the headlines these days and the various philosophical attrocities being committed.
GW makes yet another assertion that amounts to creating a theocracy out of our country.
Other say GW has pulled a "Clinton" because he didn't say "gay." (Context droppers!)
A certain someone kills a person albeit by accident and only gets 100 days in jail. HELLO! KILLED!
Meanwhile, a poor man is threatened with legal action because he puts a possum in a cage.
In other realms, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is a bajillion dollar business. Can someone please be serious for a second?
J Lo's engagement to Ben Affleck is finally off, for real, this time. Britney Spears got her marriage anulled, probably justified by the fact that they didn't have sex. And some states are still trying to keep me from smooching on The Good Doctor!
You know, there are so many folks in this country alone who just suck. They're ignorant or stupid or mean or just plain broke-down. Why? All because of this notion that ideas don't mean anything.
People say, "Believe whatever you want to believe."
"Different strokes for different folks. It's what makes the world go 'round."
"Your reality is whatever you believe."
"Who's to say your logic is logical?"
"Can't we all just get along?"
"I respect your beliefs even though I don't believe them."
I could make a list of these bromides as long as I am tall.
I need a vacation to a sunny place where everyone is rational. Where people already know that reality is objective and that action follows ideas and philosophy is important. I'm just so tired of so much wrong when I KNOW there can be so much more right.
Ahhhhhhhhh.... That's the spot.
[Trey Givens responds] It's very optimistic of you to say that there are more rational people out there... but I am highly skeptical about that.
