Perhaps the way that we're supposedly defending ourselves is the thing that harms us the most

As that way exists, it prevents us from seeing that harm and impels us to exacerbate the levels of "defense."

Perhaps defense is just a lie to justify it's own existence… To keep itself out of the box when it's not required and actually creates problems in order to have something to "solve."

Perhaps it limits your options, rather than expands them. It only gives you a sledge hammer, when all you need is a screwdriver.

Perhaps it blinds us to the folly a path that we've never made for ourselves and prevents us from considering better directions.

Perhaps it creates more fears and invents enemies where they would not normally exist.

And how would we know if we refuse to think that we may be wrong?

Mom Jailed for Lawn, Now Faces More Time For Ivy On Her House!

Karen Holloway went to jail for her overgrown yard – now they want to get her for her ivy! The waitress and mother of four is now listed in in the local “mugshot” rag along with rapists and child molesters – and now they want to put her in jail for days or even weeks.

According to a friend who also attended her hearing this week, Karen of four noticed that a code enforcement officer was idling in front of her house when she walked up to his car and asked what he was doing there. He replied “You’ll find out tomorrow in court.” Karen, not being the type to give up easily, pressed him, and he pointed to the ivy growing on her historic home, and said it was an issue that she needed to take care of before her next hearing.

“But lots of houses have ivy on them! It’s beautiful. What’s the matter with ivy?” she said.

“This ain’t England” was his reply.
