Do you really think a world where the innocent aren't brutalized equates to heaven? That's pitiful. To aspire to so little.

I would not want to live in a world where the suffering of innocents were not possible. It would be heaven. No one would strive for anything because no one would have to strive against anything. What you expect of reality is absurd.

I don't expect it. I expect absolute horror. I don't expect a supernatural entity to intervene. I don't expect rescue, or redemption, or logic, or sanity. I expect cruelty, banality, and death.

Trust in God and gives thanks for the good and the bad. Pray for peace on earth and everlasting life in heaven.

A world where innocent people are magically not brutalized isn't some kind of heaven? How is that pitiful or aspiring to "so little"? I'm really not understanding what you are saying.

That we would be expected to be thankful for so little. Just NOT being subject to torture would 'heaven'. It's disgusting. This is perhaps at the heart of my antinatalism- I think we are entitled, all of us, to much, much more. To simply be free of torture would be so little to ask, its a pitiful aspiration. Our lives, being conscious, is an obscenity. We were entitled to better.

Guess it don't matter, ready. It's the tool we've got. :/
