There are some things, members, that are just plain bad; famine, Walt Disney, asteroids slamming into the earth at hundreds of miles an hour. Sure they can be explained and sometimes justified, but that doesn’t change the fact that each will somehow warp time-space into something other than large scale peace. No religion required to make this fine distinction; simply a brain of the evolutionary primate variety. The irony is that the worst of the lot is actually fomented in said primate brains: War. This week which expands from the 4th of July, sure, celebrate the great experiment in secular democracy, but forgo the fireworks. The real bombs going off will be loud enough to inspire you to a bit of peace-related brilliance.
