The need for a fair and just world is among the most understandable of all human desires. It stands as the cornerstone of our humanity and yet it is and will always be only a goal we aspire to but will never achieve. For the goal is not to convert the playing field of human society to a fair, just, organized, virtuous system but to transcend that need by becoming someone who does not contribute to the darkness, who will always be an active agent of the human experience. This is not a reasonable challenge; it is a mystical one, one that defies reason. But the entire human experience defies reason. We defy reason, as we are civilized and brutal, kind and cruel, generous and selfish, caring and cold, honest and dishonest simultaneously. We embody good and evil, darkness and light every second of our lives. But at some point, we must choose an alignment with the force that will hold the authority within our mind, our conscience, our heart and our soul.
