Seems to me it is impossible to hold just about any view in this world without some natural or willed ignorance.


True spirituality is never about anyone or anything but yourself.


It is my horribly inexpert opinion that the American government should have been slowly and regularly raising the price of gasoline since the 70s. Adjusting taxes to remove wild swings in price. Thus continually spurring efficiency and alternatives. What might be different now if we had?


It is a horror when people obviously die because of our greed, despite the fact that it in-obviously happens all the time.

Ya know, I've got a cynical, snarky streak a mile wide. I can find the shit in the best pie. And the truth is I've rained on quite a few parades in my time. But I realized somewhere along the line that it never accomplishes much other than multiplying unhappiness. It is certainly tempting to try to make everyone as miserable as oneself. But like so many things, it is a child's game--even when you dress it up in a life-weary guise or a mod style.

I'll probably always struggle with it. Or maybe I can find a way to fill the holes in myself that drive me to such things. And I hope the many people with the same problems can find a way to combat them within themselves.

There is a blurry and difficult line between being cruel to be kind and just being cruel. Too often we find vaguely noble excuses for cruelty when really all we want to do is satisfy the sadist in ourselves.

It seems most of what's wrong with humanity is exemplified in denatured alcohol.

I'm not sure which was the more dangerous invention: guns or statistics.

Where would America be if its government had spent the money used to subsidize oil companies and to wage war in Iraq on subsidizing energy efficient products and sustainable energy sources?

While we're wailing about the housing crisis and gas prices, what future crises that we could do something about right now are we ignoring?
