On that last post...

Ah, I'm getting tired of all this nonsense anyway. It's not my job to correct everyone who says something stupid, is it? Why do I feel obligated to? Especially in this medium, which is like writing on water?

I've read the wisdom and decency of Socrates' encomium on Love in the Symposium, or Schopenhauer on Compassion in The Basis of Morality, or Confucius on the heart of learning in The Annalects, and these are writings that endure. But, arguing over the left and the right, two masks that hide the face of resentment, is just totally pointless. And to think that Plato wrote in the aftermath of the Peloponnesian War, or Confucius during the Warring States Period, these times of great chaos and hatred- not a lot different from our own. And they came up with new ideas that have endured. Terrorists won't endure, and neither will warmongers. These are the shifting faces of resentment.

Truth endures.

So, where do we find it?
