  2. Mortals always want something more- they wish for money, but what they’re really after is to be carefree. Power when what they really want is control. Beauty when they want love. Sometimes they know it, sometimes they don’t

  8. anecdoche
    n. a conversation in which everyone is talking but nobody is listening, simply overlaying disconnected words like a game of Scrabble, with each player borrowing bits of other anecdotes as a way to increase their own score, until we all run out of things to say.

  10. snakewastaken said: Dear Snake: I have a question that has really been bothering me lately and I could use help, you seem quite wise and thoughtful so I figured you might be able to offer some wisdom. I realize that when you can, you should put money and resources towards helping others but is it not better to help only one person with all those resources so that maybe they would succeed and help another? If every person helped one person, everyone would be okay. ( Also I didn't realize it, but I sound like you. )

    msf-actual:

    If every person helped one person, no one would be okay.

    Society as we know it is structured so that not everyone can feasibly obtain a comfortable amount of the resources required to both live and thrive. The thrive part is important, as it generally gives us a goal, a reason to carry on. Fear of not being able to survive demands that we work for it. The desire for something more than survival wills us to work harder. Together, those two things allow us to pull off astounding—and often terrifying—feats. Take them away, though, and you’re left with a city, national, or world population with dangerously different views and an obscene amount of time to kill.

    What’s more is that the type of aid a person needs can vary from one to the next. The only possible way to give everyone what they need that I see is to create a base standard of living and remove money altogether. An even distribution of goods and services, coupled with everyone working toward a common goal; it sounds good on paper, but this world has a history of chewing up ideals like those and spitting them out.

    Now, none of this is meant to imply that helping people is bad. The concept of helping a large body of people en masse through charities is a wonderful one, and I’d even agree that you more apt to see clearer and more definitive results by directly contributing to the success of one solitary person of your choosing, but I don’t think that either are a a recipe for a perfect society.
