this is how the world falls over.
first, someone does something bad. then, someone else calls it ‘good’. so other people do it too, because it’s ‘good’. eventually, someone comes along and says, “this is not good. this is bad.” people take sides. there is lots of fighting. then someone says, “fighting is bad. we should stop fighting.” everyone stops fighting but some people are still doing bad. they do bad for a long time. the other people, who said it wasn’t good, start to wonder if maybe it’s not THAT bad…
more people start doing the bad thing. occasionally, someone pipes up that it’s not good, but then someone else says, “fighting is worse. and what do you know anyway? stop judging me.”
over time, there are more people doing bad than there are people doing good. so bad starts to look good and good starts to look bad.
and then the world falls over.
the world is slowly falling over because the people doing good have stopped talking and the people doing bad never listened anyway.
so who’s fault will it be when the world falls over?
everyone’s. including yours and mine. †
