The Third Eye is right, allow no room for the option to fill your mind. It didn't before and you can defeat it if the situations are dire enough for
it to seem an option. I am reminded of our collective ailment when remembering a time my father discussed with me a talk he had with a random fellow
he met about religious and absolute things. He, apparently, related drunkenly that if there were no heaven and no hell that he was "wasting his
life" and could have been doing "the fun stuff", after which he listed rape, murder and the like. I could never imagine this before he told the
story, and completely shows naked the more extreme iterations of this mind-sickness that infects our societies. We can defeat it. The sickness, not
the people. Those are damaged and hurt aspects of all of humanity manifesting themselves in these poor souls with the volume knob broke past 10. It
deserves notice and consideration as well as compassion and forgiveness to correct, not a stern hand and a revenge minded justice.
These damages and hurts are cycles and we are doomed to repeat them without help or the knowledge to help ourselves(ideal). Needing the most of this
thoughtful process are the least of us. Who that is is not always obvious. The man my father talked to was a priest. This is why it sticks out so
much in my mind. I think about it often. I wanted to leave that out to spare feelings, but I feel things like this, these ugly things, can't be
avoided so much. How can they ever be fixed if we don't realize the extent? And fear of knowing the truth cannot be valid. It just can't.
