Mario Piperni and Boston

Boston…and believing

Boston - terrorism  :


Boston. Fucking horrible.

I remember, when 9/11 went down, my reaction was, “Well, I’ve had it with humanity.”

But I was wrong. I don’t know what’s going to be revealed to be behind all of this mayhem. One human insect or a poisonous mass of broken sociopaths.

But here’s what I DO know. If it’s one person or a HUNDRED people, that number is not even a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a percent of the population on this planet. You watch the videos of the carnage and there are people running TOWARDS the destruction to help out. (Thanks FAKE Gallery founder and owner Paul Kozlowski for pointing this out to me). This is a giant planet and we’re lucky to live on it but there are prices and penalties incurred for the daily miracle of existence. One of them is, every once in awhile, the wiring of a tiny sliver of the species gets snarled and they’re pointed towards darkness.

But the vast majority stands against that darkness and, like white blood cells attacking a virus, they dilute and weaken and eventually wash away the evil doers and, more importantly, the damage they wreak. This is beyond religion or creed or nation. We would not be here if humanity were inherently evil. We’d have eaten ourselves alive long ago.

So when you spot violence, or bigotry, or intolerance or fear or just garden-variety misogyny, hatred or ignorance, just look it in the eye and think, “The good outnumber you, and we always will.”

True…but good triumphs only when good people speak up against violence and bigotry and intolerance and misogyny and hatred each and every time they encounter it.

  1. Having been confronted with several very right-wing, not to say fascist North American blogs I noticed that there are some dangerous thoughts by certain groups which could destabilize the country.

    Many Americans are afraid for the danger coming from other countries and Islam groups but it could well be that the danger and terror, like the ones in 1995 and the day before yesterday in Boston, could come from within.

    The United States should keep a close eye on or control several weapon groups and some groups which advocate that the US should hold fast to its amendments, but are more dictating their own very conservative and limiting ideas.
