A single death is a tragedy; a million deaths is a statistic. - Joseph Stalin

Utopia?

Awaiting 1 more ratings...

Utopia- as opposed to dystopia (something closer to reality) in this world of hatred and violence and endless division... Still, i wonder- without these what would fuel resistance? We all know that every story has conflict and for every hero there's a villain... and theology teaches us that we are created with free will an ability to choose one of nature's dichotomy s good and evil- that cosmic yin/yang. It has always been so- the thirst for excitement and adventure a bit of danger to keep the plot moving... With total perfection what is the aim? And without struggle what becomes of hope? Challenge makes life interesting, visceral not a saccharine sameness, not apathy. So give me the fight so I can better enjoy victory Life- don't leave me unscathed just a scrappy contender.
