Damn Weirdo

Unhappiness begins when one realizes that one is a weirdo, a misfit. Given that the human is a tribal animal, this distress is an understandable survival instinct.

A rough contentment begins when one realizes that one no longer cares that one is a weirdo.

Gratitude sets in when one realizes that one lives in a society that allows weirdos to survive.

I love Western civilization.

Remember what Ghandi said when asked what he thought of Western civilization. He said, "I think it would be a good idea."
