i love it! so satisfying to build it well so it lights with one click of a lighter, no petrol or other flammable shit tossed on... and then watching the beautiful colours, the sounds, and the perfume of the woods... heaven toss in a couple of baked potatoes and tomato soup and i'm a frikkin' angel!
aha: Do thoughts have a pattern?
yeah, but sometimes i can't discern them and let them do their own 'pattern in the chaos' thang
are you a politically-minded animal?
For 95% of my life I had no political leanings I had no interest; didn't watch the news; didn't read the paper, I simply went about my life working, raising my kids; until my hand was seemingly forced into a political frame.
You can ignore politics but it never ignores you so to speak, and with the advent of social media people have their opinions and instead of healthy respectful discourse you see mobbing, canceling people, going after jobs, ability to use amenities, it's such a crazy thing to witness.
People often forget that gallileo's was a dissenting opinion once, and that the ability to have, view and disseminate both sides of an arguement is what leads to a more level headded approach.
From what I can see I agree with Johnathan Haidt's comments
The left think the right are evil
The right think the left are stupid
However both sides have opposing arguements that have merit, balanced between is society
Tip it too far in either direction... well we've seen it done and the bodies or millions pave the streets we walk for the sake of what limited freedom we have.
Do you believe human history, the blood bath that it is, is taught properly?
I.e. there's too much focus on recent history and not enough nuance of further back so we understand how many bodies we stand upon to have what we have?
