“Most people seem to just want to get on with it.” Or so a friend advised me when I complained about how most people do not want to really understand something, or stand up to do the right thing in the face of adversity.
And he has a point. Most people I know want a low-challenge education, an easy marriage, easy children (if any at all), a low-risk career, a safe retirement, and then an easy death. They want to be told what to do, and they are content to follow instructions, even if those instructions are, on their face, laughably irrational and senseless. (e.g. TSA, Covid, etc.)
This tells me that most people are just trying to pass through this world as painlessly as possible. That means they don’t really want to be alive at all.
What a depressing thought.Published in
