Empathy and compassion are such overplayed cards, especially in politics; played by people who take them to be all that is needed to help. But they forget that, perhaps purposefully or perhaps they never understood it in the first place, that If you don’t know how to help, you hurt or are likely to hurt those whom you want to help.
A sharp thing in the hands of a thug can wound, in the hands of a doctor can save. It is paramount to learn the difference; reality won’t bend to your feelings.
I wish all of us could be who we pretend to be everyday.
A bunch of educated idiots who want different things, tie their futures, and their intestines together into a system that makes getting those very things impossible.Then this monster, for it is a monster, crawls to the town square to publicly screech in terror over the different choices each head of the body makes, because *gasp* each head is an individual who has their own preferences. Unable to move in any direction because each wants different things and their intestines are tied up together, this horror show screeches in agony from the threat the other heads from its own body pose. Never learning its lessons; Never questioning its premises; Never progressing forward – the intestines stretch, then some more, it then finally dies in a ditch.
