    This all fits. The bolded I feel VERY strongly and identify with a ton (the first and third one to the point where I have a bit of an "ouch" response). Grey I can't say is wrong, but it not entirely right either.

    I agree very strongly with all except the bolded, which I can't help but nitpick:

    1) Why should perfect be hard?* Ideally, perfect would be easy. Sure would take a load off my back.
    2) What if "the rules of decent society" were wrong? If they're wrong, someone should change them. I'd agree if the word choice were changed to something more vague, and less establishmentarian, like "If everyone did what's right, and what they should be doing, as perfectly as they can, then everything would flow much more smoothly."


    *not to be confused with: Why should perfect be @Hard? (answer: because he's a 1w2)
