I've decided that I'm... hmm... just stubborn.
I will not accept that humans are not capable of more than they do. I will not accept that I cannot improve the world and change things. I will not accept that I am not in control of my own destiny.
I will not accept these things despite history and all of my own experiences, and the understanding of my own sad human frailties.
I must be either ox-headed stubborn, or damn stupid.
Being the conceited thing I am, I chose stubborn.
It must make me a demanding friend. I try not to impose my ideals on others, but if I think I can improve something, make someone happier, or if I think it's the right thing to do, I'll tell them when they're wrong. I'll always try to say it nicely, but are intentions enough? Am I wrongly convinced I'm on some kind of moral high ground?
Eh, too much to do. Have run into hiccup on webpage. Rargh!
