Looks pretty likely.
An unshakable belief in our own or in our heroes’ goodness might come from the right place but too often ends in disaster.
I am firmly of the belief that people are not innately good. We need rules and regulations. Freedom has to be tempered with responsibility. And some of that responsibility has to be imposed from without.
Can’t we all just get along? Can’t we just do the right thing?
No. Not in this life or the next. This is a question, no disrespect intended, for fools and innocents.
Even self interest isn’t a reliable measure. People work against their own best interests all the time. Hello smoking, overeating, drugs, gambling and on and on.
So while the rumors and evidence against Lance Armstrong mount, I look on with sorrow. And check in with my accountability partner.
