The thing is, I am actually serious, it makes sense.

Monty Python - Always Look on the Bright Side of Life

Check the credits out LOL

Chapman, and Michael, and Palin. Now isn't that looking on the bright side :D

Side note, don't fall into any label traps... ;) Is it the outside or the inside?

If you think of the two sides as.

Light, openness, transparency, education, and love.

And the opposite side of that as

Secrecy, violence, coercion, and hate.

You see why some people have it rough.

What would happen if those two sides 'fought a battle' many people immediately think the love side would lose and get beat up, and that would be losing. Because they think from the opposite perspective.

Every time a person, acting in mostly dark, with some light in them at all, beats up on an innocent person that is trying to help someone or even them, there is a chance of a spark in their conscious to relight life in them. 'Sheep to the slaughter' is not making fun of the sheep it is honoring them for knowing it is not about 'winning' by how the opposites define it. So that is how some get kicked around. And why it takes far more courage not to be violent, and not to take the easy road of hate.

What would happen when someone that believes in education and love comes up against someone that believes in 'take whatever you can' and violence. Sometimes the violent person sees things from a different perspective and thinks on better ways in society, sometimes the kind person becomes violent, although that is rarer, but the reason they are attacked to get them to hate and be violent.

Side note, wanted to post this, since many opposites are trying to pretend like they are winning something when using things in opposite ways.

If you kick around someone trying to help you, what do you win? What do you gain?

Also why the good side in many films is said to not intervene, because if you see through dark perspective, then education and kindness is 'not intervention' because they want people to fight with violence and hate.

It really is pretty simple to understand.

And I understand humor as a protection from thought. But what are you laughing at and why. And it also depends, when things end, and it has been shown it is possible that death is not the end.
