about the cruelty of man.
We admire people with the capacity to love without hesitation and unconditionally, to forgive every and all transgressions.
We usually regard these people as saints.

Amongst them,
Mother Teresa, or Jesus.. etc..
ok the latter isn't a saint but the son of god BUT u get what i'm trying to get at.

Regular humans aren't as selfless.
We aren't all-forgiving.
We're petty, small-minded, vengeful, harsh, unyielding, and pretty damn cruel.

I have been cruel many times. Justified by reasons of my own creations. Assuaging that guilt by declaring, it's justified by point a, point b, blaablaa..
but when you look back on it, guilt, remorse, all of it comes flooding back but what's done is done. At the end of the day though, we'll still continue being selfish and being basically human.
It's all driven by the basic human nature to preserve themselves.
That's actually what allows torture to work. The basic instinct to spare ourselves the pain and hurt.

When can we rise above? When can we be more than just human?

P.S. I'm full of crap when I'm sick
Post is a little thin on content. oh well...
