we wear them til we cannot see

Well didn't you like what I said? Didn't it make sense?

First of all, those insecurities are painful to watch, and secondly, no I don't agree. I know my soul is contrary and I hold out little hope for the human condition, believing not in the evolution to higher selves or the panaceae of more education and more money. Not that money is unnecessary as a root of all evil and a way to pay the bills and not that education isn't a beautiful thing, but the people who do the most damage to the rest of the world are people with education and money, so no. And while technology has evolved to the point where more good and more evil can be perpetrated in all sorts of new and inventive ways, I don't think human nature's changed at all.

But don't you think I'm right?
No, and even if I did, does that make you any less wrong? Truth is true whether it's assented to or not, and on the things that we don't know or share the same views on there will be inevitable disagreements. If anything I assume that others will disagree with me, because even those who see through the same lens see at different angles, and also because I don't see anyone's -isms as a way of making the world a better place.

But I liked what you said!
That's all well and good, but if you liked it, you weren't really listening.
