For some, life could be defined as a “determining the lies we’ve been sold” project.

Set aside all the misjudgments humans made because of their limitations, there are plenty of malevolence in the world. Bitter, lazy but ambitious people get their way probably more than we imagine.

Those who gave up hope tend to believe that evil always gets its way. It’s a depressing thought. But if that’s what you believe, you don’t have to do anything then, that’s why they are drawn to it.

The thing to consider, though, is that we have control a little more than we think. And control brings all sorts of “positive emotions”. This makes starting that project far more preferable to the other.
