Another theory

There’s quite a lot of pain in my life, and I’m starting to think that I should figure out what to do with it. How to respond to it, how to use it. One option is bitterness, apathy, anger, spending your life trying to make others as miserable as you are. Then there’s the road that can actually make a difference. Learning. This road can 'heal' you. It’s not going to be easy, but I want to become a person who does not judge and hate, but sees that behind most evil, there is usually pain. It may be just an irritating little tingling in your heart, or it may be excruciating headache 24/7, but it is pain that is limiting our ability to think and do the right thing. Try to see that, try to see yourself in the most vicious idiot, and you may be able to change the world. (Ignore the psychopaths.)

I believe that most cruelty is dysfunction. Something is not working and can be fixed. Wars, rapes, hate crimes, bullfights, fish bowls on tables. It is blindness, and one can start seeing again. Society can start seeing again. Biologically, there is a lot of potential for darkness in us, but there is also enough potential for light. Therefore there is hope. See clearly, think rationally, believe in information, believe in psychology, believe in people, and you can change the world.
