I am consumed by this idea, this belief, that people are basically capable, at least able to take care of themselves. You know, an "everything I need to know I learned in kindergarten" type of thing. Play nicely with others, share your toys, no hittting, biting, whining, stealing...you get the picture, right? Well, as obsessed as I am with this theory, the reality of this world keeps shutting me down. I find myself in a near constant state of wonderment at the basic ineptitude of the general populace. Some people may get their panties in a bunch over that statement, admittedly broad as it is, but it is proven to me over and over again. Why, I have to know, is it that we find this pseudo fascist government of ours so comforting? What is it about having our every waking moment laid out in a neat little routine that is so necessary? These are not rhetorical questions, they only read that way.
