Walking off the edge of the planet. Not really.
We all have our list of people in this world that we would like to see walk off the edge of the planet. (This is a feat that out youngest will argue is impossible. My little philosopher.) However, I wonder what purpose would that server. I mean, think about it. Every single person in this world has a mental list of the people they have been offended by or simply do not like. If we were to take these very lists and send all the people on the list away, there would be….NOONE LEFT.
Well, of course if you are a recluse hobbit sort of creature and never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever come into contact with a soul after turning 5 then there would be no one left.
What a sad place we live in that has so much hurt and hatred. Can’t we all just get along? Would that make things so much easier? No more road rage and fighting. No more hurt and grief. Psssshhh. That is not going to happen. I am most certain the aforesaid philosopher of the family, upon discovering TRUE philosophy, will argue that good cannot exist without evil. He would also argue that evil emanates from the good of the world or some such deep crap like that.
For those of us who are not philosophers, what do you think about the whole good v. evil thing? Does it also fall into line with opposites attract and ying/yang and such? What is your take on whether or not Good cannot exist without Evil and the other way around?
What DO YOU think?
