After days of extremely limited news exposure I finally got up the emotional fortitude to read about the shooting (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/27/us/active-shooter-pittsburgh-synagogue-shooting.html).
I don't really know what to say. There is nothing I could say that could make any difference. The American people, the media, social media, etc., they were offered all the ways to prevent this, and they rejected them, and this will continue to happen.
we change, we experience, we fuck up, we rollback, we learn and we retry with more knowledge. that's our ever changing nature. and the day it will stop mutating will be the end of humanity
so when i hear about "human nature" or "natural is better" or "we've always done that so we're supposed to" i just... no. absolutely not. not a million years ago, not now, not tomorrow. we define our own nature. that's our thing. that's what we've always done. that's what makes us humans.
i consider humanity as this thing that is just conscious enough to exponentially become more powerful and be aware of its own evolution - basically we can become anything with time, not just organisms meant to reproduce and die. we have the potential to control physics and reality itself, as much as we can define our own goals, and we're our own unique enemy and also so little away to whatever we define as gods. that's my humanist side. there's no limit once we're aware of it.
slightly different topic but i always tend to consider things "for humanity" more than "for me" or "for my generation". everything that is possible for me is boring as fuck and everything that inspires me is technically possible for humanity
