Reading a story about a fight on Everest where the Sherpas had rocks to kill the Americans who had insulted them, I can't help but wonder if the human species can survive.
With very much we take seriously but shouldn't - like having a new coffee pot for the office arrive late, or, what so and so superstar is wearing, or who they are marrying.
And of course along with that the very much horrible we do not take seriously enough to stop, like even allowing one child to die in the Sudan
, or allowing Saudi Arabia or Iran from preventing an 11 year old girl from quenching her desire to take classes about the moon, or not totally prosecuting an institution with fucked up rules about sex from allowing pedophiles to hide out in its ranks - you have to wonder how our species can survive.
At the same time we have organized flash mobs break out around the world into singing and dancing, or guys organizing a game called Tribal Wars where worldwide people meet and play harmless games of strategy with each other, or people traveling from all corners of the world to help in disaster emergencies, or Belgian monks making unimaginably good beer................... we have so much enlightenment along with so much dangerous mindlessness.
