24. So let me guess what your spin on history is.

Stalin was a bad guy; I have no qualms with that.

Roosevelt was an asshole because he allied with Stalin because, um, Stalin was a bad guy. (I actually think it was a wise move.)

We therefore should have fought both Stalin and Hitler, because of our extreme moral superiority to both of them.

I wonder how history might have worked out then? A better world, you think?

Whether you are aware of it or not, we are fighting a war, a very real one. It's against ourselves. And it has practical consequences involved with death and suffering, not all that different than a shooting war.

My own biggest concern at the end of my life is actually climate change. It will fuck up the world far more than Hitler and Stalin might have done combined as allies.

I have no use whatsoever for impractical holiness. None. I live in the real world.
