I’ve only been at this a few months, but I’ve still had to abandon a handful of posts because I didn’t think they were suitable for the medium. From the start, war and politics were two things that I consciously decided to avoid writing about here; regarding both, there’s already plenty to be found on The Internet.
That said, I just wanted to let you know I’ve found it easier to accept the impending environmental collapse once I realized that Homo sapiens simply doesn’t deserve to live on a nice, fostering planet anymore. Remember the end of Gremlins, where Billy had to surrender the mogwai? Our species’ lack of maturity and responsibility is exactly the same, save that there’s no cosmic Mr. Wing to facilitate the hand over. Instead, we all just die.
Don’t read that too harshly. I’m feeling pretty good about my breakthrough.
