Irrational kind

To be successful, a philosopher or religious leader needs to tell you only one thing that you won’t believe. Human beings like this kind of nonsense. We like to be challenged so we tend to make things as difficult as possible. We abuse others and are abused. We idealize the tortured saints. We let our jobs enslave us, and we use our jobs to enslave others. We commit crimes both against nature and against our own laws. We celebrate the outlaw, the burglar, the hired gun. We start wars and entertain ourselves with movies about war. We enjoy horrors and tragedies. We accept the horrors and the tragedies, even when they happen to us. We think others deserve to suffer; we know we deserve to suffer.
