Because I don't want to commit heinous crimes. Why would you want to?

I don't want to. But then again I am simple enough to believe that it is wrong to cause pain and suffering. But believing in right and wrong presupposes meaning.


Right and wrong are human concepts and speaking as the human estd, I think I get along better by more or less following what society considers "right". Is there any meaning to this? Perhaps at a personal level, but certainly not on any grand scale.


The question I wonder about is why don't you want to.

All I can say is again, why would I want to. What joy, what fun, what could I get from commiting crimes? I trully believe that we are all just different aspects of the same stuff. Why would I want to stick pins in myself?

Are not Hitler, Stalin, and Mao just more of those amusing dancing clowns?

Yes, they are, but I must admit, it is a little harder to get the joke in some cases then it is in others.
