Video Games and Violence
The pauses and the slight loss of track may be because of sudden stomach pains.
Over the years, i’ve had the odd thing about me that although there were stupid people, they could learn to have common sense. Some time later, I found that not all of them would actually be willing unless their worldview was proven false, and the wool burned from their eyes. I wanted to be a voice to teach the ignorant, to show them that what they were taught isn’t necessarily true.
Now, I wear sunglasses because the blurred, darkened view of what I see is easier on my eyes instead of the focused, clear view of the stupidity I see in this world.
I seek hope in the victories in the name of intelligence and common sense, and get despair in the immensely painful failures I see in the victories in the name of ignorance and stupidity.
Sometimes I wonder if in old age if I will be nearly as stubborn towards the next generation.
