To The Daily Sun,
A fool may think to believe or even know but to know as with believing doesn’t require thinking. That to is looked upon as foolish. So there we are either side of a dilemma for which none can resolve, either looking to the other as a fool. One may get on with life left to periotic disturbances of the other ranting time after time.
Life doesn’t require answers, but does live with acceptance, such that one and all in reality never were and will after a time never be here where we are. A few may think the other a fool to believe in something more than oneself; such is life. Then of course there is one who finds the world so over bearing; life which continues living regardless their circumstance whether the flea or the flyer, the fish or the fisherman. Unable to find peace with the worlds reality, the individual finds ranting much as those that are protested to somehow for a moment drown the silence in the mind. Straws are said to break the camels back, mountains are made from mole hills and then there are those that seek to justify their point of view in words written over 200 years ago. But only those words, no references, just words taken out of context.
The first Treaty of Tripoli was approved with protest; we had to pay a huge ransom before even being allowed to see it. Fools may have rejected it as it had been interrupted had any actually seen the original Arabic document. A second Treaty of Tripoli negated the first, written because the Pasha of Tripoli had broken it. Presenting history intentionally leaving out details is what might be called junk history. Not giving ones reader all the facts, insisting they just take ones word is sort of like the very ‘viewed’ reality so loudly protested.
