The Propensities of Man

When you think about the unbound hatred human kind can render upon itself it makes you think about the direction we are taking ourselves as a civilization. How are we suppose to know if we crossed the line if no one drew the line to cross? It's only going to get worse as we go, and as the planet gets more crowded. And the violence of man has not necessarily increased over our period of existence, we merely have better means of informing everyone else of what is going on in any part of the world. So instead of being left in the dark on all the death and destruction, you get to see it everyday in the media! And right now my little brother is fighting the war in Iraq because our President wants us to believe that's part of his war on terrorism! Iraq wasn't even a threat to us until we went over there, and now we aren't even fighting Iraqis, we are fighting all the terrorists from other nations that hate Americans, we have given them easy access to us by walling ourselves up in Iraq. Maybe my opinions are wrong, or even warped because my brother is over there. But the fact is it was pointless, we haven't found anything over there dangerous as far as WMD'S go, don't get me wrong, I'm GLAD we got Saddam, but at what price, seeing as how he had no means to harm us? Anyways I'm getting too mad to talk about this anymore right now. "Show Bush the Door In 2004"

At least photography and art calms me down. As long as you can still find beautiful and mysterious things to take your mind off the propensities of man your doing alright.
