It is uniquely human, Jon, to attribute the ownership of truth to ourselves alone. It’s ridiculously difficult to remember that there are endless versions of that same truth, and the gaining of others perspectives along the way forces us to see differently. All I know is that ultimately I don’t know shit about anything, not really. Not truly. While that at times makes me feel somewhat unmoored as it removes whatever rocks in the river I want to hold onto in these rapids, if have the courage to let go and move with those waters I might learn a thing or two. Or a thousand. Righteousness is an evil unto itself. That I do know. And when I feel it rise like bile I have to swallow it or spit it out. It adds nothing but more evil.
