      It would be terribly dishonest of kind people to deny they struggle with others or for contentious people to deny their softer moments. As you say, we have proclivities, but nobody is strictly one dimensional. If so, pure kindness is as monstrous as pure cruelty as Lautreamont skillfully demonstrated in his only two works.

      Though I'm not beyond objectifying Mr. Depp, I think Thompson helped blur the boundary between counter-culture and bourgeoisie, probably not his intent, but certainly not conducive to any real political progress.

      It's peculiar how distinction often becomes commonplace and boring, almost herd like. That, or people have more in common than they think they do. The not so greats are easily imitated while the truly great are still being deciphered.

I agree there will be progress beyond Einstein, that stasis is impossible and so I am no sidewinder. It seems a reevaluation of the neutrino super speeders has lessened confidence in anything going faster than light. CERN is backing off the claim .

Belief had been inculcated most deeply in mankind and its deflation threw a great many into a sort of philosophical paralysis. The luke warm protestants on this list have not recovered yet and they pine for their rocked ribbed security. Sorry sons of the parsonage, its is gone forever. They are like the sons of marx, they just can`t accept that communism is dead. So we end up athiest with a protestant hangover that leaves us with these agnostic whiners. Christian burial and veneration of spirtual objects remain for the clod heads but the non competative waste of such weak witchcraft will wear them and the practical believers out.
