Evolving toward peace?

“For in the creation of the social brain, nature, through man, has eluded the trap which has engulfed in one way or another every other form of life on the planet.  Within the reasonable limits of the brain that now exists, she has placed the long continuity of civilized memory as it lies packed in the world’s great libraries.  The need is not really for more brains, the need is now for a gentler, a more tolerant people than those who won for us against the ice, the tiger, and the bear.  The hand that hefted the ax, out of some old blind allegiance to the past fondles the machine gun as lovingly.  It is a habit man will have to break to survive, but the roots go very deep.”

~Loren Eiseley, from The Immense Journey

    “We’re d***s! We’re reckless, arrogant, stupid d***s.

    And the Film Actors Guild are p*****s.

    And Kim Jong II is an a******.

    P*****s don’t like d***s, because p*****s get f****d by d***s.

    But d***s also f*** a******s, a******s who just wanna sh** on everything.

    P*****s may think they can deal with a******s their way.

    But the only thing that can f*** an a****** is a d*** with some b***s.

    The problem with d***s is that sometimes they f*** too much.

    And it takes a p**** to show them that.

    But sometimes p*****s get so full of sh** that they become a******s themselves.

    Because p*****s are only an inch and a half away from a******s.

    I don’t know much in this crazy, crazy world…

    …but I do know that if you don’t let us f*** this a******…

    …we are gonna have our d***s and our p*****s…

    …all covered in sh**.”
