Go read Arthur

Whoever just told me to do that.... They're right. Go read Arthur.

This is a great post, and it collects Arthur's ideas in a compact enough form that flyweight intellects like mine might be able to use them, instead of merely admire them.

Yes, of course we need to take better care of children, but violence, tribalism, war are part of the human condition. Peace takes everyone; war only requires a single bad actor, and the inherently flawed nature of human beings (Religion is wrong about the existence of God, but not about Original Sin) means there will always be such actors, and thus a need for others willing to use force to keep them in check. No New Man is going to emerge that leaves these things behind (at least until we can redesign our basic genetics, and I very much doubt even then).
