being that winning, itself, is the biological imperative, it seems at once to be the most and least obvious of all conspiracies. if any group seeks
to conspire, it is surely to WIN some thing or another.
sports teams ...
...all, in it to win it.
being the classic "born loser", it's that last one there (sports) that turned me off to the whole notion of competition which, over several decades
of living, has turned me into a pacifist in the truest sense. I simply do not care to win. anything. ever. (...and I HATE football season.)
as you might guess, this has introduced many distinct problems into my life. but the reason I write this is not because of the problems, but because
of the benefits. and in my own way, I am putting my own voice into this god-awful atrocious "gun debate".
so, being that it HAS BEEN the biological imperative for aeons, must it continue to be so?
I have long been fond of the idea that the "next phase" of evolution will rely not upon physical survival, which along with guns and wars, will
become a relic of the past. no, the future is the evolution of ideas and information. it's the losers, the poor kids that get their butts kicked on
the playground and those whom are least "fit" in the darwinian sense, that pave the way to a utopian star-trek type society.
we're sure as hell not going to get there with GUNS.
perhaps the reason people cling to their guns is because they have not made peace with their inner loser?
