The Insanity of it All

Sometimes I think that Humanity in general has to be bat-shit crazy. Considering the screwed up things some people do to each other and the general nastiness of the world, one would have to be crazy to keep getting out of bed in the mornings.

One would have to be crazy to keep hoping the world can be a better place. One would have to be crazy to keep on trying to improve their small corners of the world.

Because we keep working, keep trying, and keep hoping and the world repeatedly shows us that humans are a cruel and violent race. People are not inherently good. People are constantly striving against the darkness inside them.

Some use religion. Some use spirituality. Some find creative ways to vent that darkness in writing, painting, music, photography. Some use their science talents to try to heal and solve problems and create new opportunities.

But if insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result, than we really just have to be an insane race of creatures – Humanity.
