Politics is like a child and humanity its parent. When it is shown far too little attention and far too much neglect, like a child its nature can only grow more wild and reckless till its a becomes a threat to itself and its creator.
Its not the ability to stand for himself that makes a man a man, most master that ability as children, its rather the ability to stand for something greater than themselves that separates man from child.
“There is a big difference between loving your parents as a child and loving your parents as an adult. As a child you love unconditionally, loving them as gods, beings perfect in all regards. As time wears on that perfect image fades, you begin to see the flaws, they no longer are the gods they once were. As an adult it’s not that you come to love them any less however, instead, you begin to love them for what they are, as human beings.”
“I want to be good” the phrase, such a simple want, something a child would say. Yet as one grows older, one comes to realize that for such a simple want, it is very difficult one to be. Five words do not speak of a lifetime struggle, there is a cruel trickery in that, for all the easiness in wanting them they are that much more arduous to achieve.
