Story for Medium members only

The more I uncover about the extent of the damage done to the Earth, to human beings, to ideas themselves - the more saddened I become. Make no mistake, things are not this way by accident. Humanity is not hard, being a decent one is not impossible.

But what is this tripe that human decency can be taught? Who seduced folks with the false hope that if we just ask kindly enough, they'll stop killing us? Why is the default to force people to do anything and why don't you realize how ironic that is?

No, no. Laughs sunkenly.

You may pretend otherwise but decisions are made.
