All well-intentioned people need to be courageous enough to confront the fact that our lives, our future, our economies, even our governments, are hamstrung by superstitious beliefs. We are all individually responsible for our own actions. Forget destiny. Forget Heaven. Forget Hell. Imagine if you can bring yourself to do so for a slight millisecond that we can determine what happens with our lives and our societies. One group can go be crazy over there. One group can go be happy over there. One group can go be super productive over there. One group can go fight each other over there. There’s room for that. There’s room for everything. But to think that we are in some pre-arranged scenario is foolish and ficticious. To think so is detrimental to human health and civility. WE decide what happens. So choose for YOURSELF, and please allow me to CHOOSE FOR MYSELF. Pretend that you actually honor the values you claim to respect and represent. Fake it until you make it. That’s good enough for now. Just stop ruining the world because you think you know how it works. You are likely stupid but you can grow out of it. Stupid is as stupid does. Open your eyes and do the right thing. Because there actually are right things. And it’s our job to figure out what those things are and to pass those discoveries along to those that come after us.

If a country were truly a democracy then voting day would be a national holiday. It would be a sanctified occasion for sure. To do otherwise would be like being a Christian and not observing Christmas or Easter. 🙂
So let’s just make up our minds and decide if we want to be a democracy or if we do not want to be a democracy. If we’re going to do it let’s do it well, go all in for God’s sake! Otherwise just stop pretending and do something else.

More pluses for Washington State, Oregon, and California in the “reasons to live there” column! 🙂👍
Looking forward to see the aforementioned sanity from more states in the near future.
