Prudence

Wouldn’t it be lovely if the hardest thing we had to do was “be nice” to each other?

Alas, life is not that easy.

There are plenty of reasons to be cynical… and to live in fear of other humans… who can be petty, covetous, dishonest, lazy, ungrateful, untrustworthy, greedy, and vengeful.

The common parasites who whine, gossip, scapegoat, malinger, and freeload are annoying enough, but the challenge does not stop there. We live among those who commit true evil… countless “humans” who cheat, betray, steal, abuse, slander, terrorize, exploit, rape, torture, and murder. Some of them are so vicious and remorseless that an intelligent, compassionate person may sincerely ask: Is being kind, forgiving, trusting, and generous really in my best interest?
