Human beings are proud. When I was a kid, I was taught in smaller classes that human beings are a superior species compared to other forms of life. The teacher would ask the question, and keep the answer in suspense. Then she would say - "Humans have a power to think, and to reason" !! We are intelligent!!
Today morning, as I switch the channels in the good old idiot box, I saw this long bearded guy , dressed as a saint, advocating the use of some ring to bring in money to your home. I see politicians saying "I didnt say it," the very next day he said 'It." And he wins the next election. I saw people eagerly waiting for a court verdict over some building constructed five centuries before. I see people honking at a red signal in traffic, assuming the honking will turn the light green. I see people reading 'How to be successful' books.
We are intelligent enough to write rules for living, we are intelligent enough to break it. We are intelligent enough to invent money, so are we intelligent enough to steal money. We are intelligent enough to invent marriage, and we are equally intelligent to invent divorce.
Why invent these things at all, if it is necessary that we have to invent its complement?
We are not intelligent at all, to see the bigger picture called the world. As we lay on this cold floor, we put the floor in the microscope, look at the little organisms and pity them. No one looks at the door where we are locked in.
No matter what I write, No matter where I live, No matter my bank statement, no matter how much Martini I drink, I will still look at this world and worry about the future and life. So will you.
No living being in this earth was ever born this stupid.
