    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

People claim to care about certain problems, but they don't like when other people make them feel insecure about their lack of knowledge or understanding of said problems. They prefer their own mental framework, and will often go to extreme lengths to protect it.
    I can agree with that.

    Although some kind of longing for simplicity is there inside us (and I think it may be a charm of Forrest Gump ). To have a simpler life, closer to essence of existence, not have great expectations, live from day to day. Many philosophers thought this way. But it’s a casual thought. There is an abyss between simple wisdom and foolishness.

    I think I’m on the dark side- I liked Forrest Gump

    I'd respond to you with discussions about philosophy, but it would just consist of fluff posts.
