Neither Hope nor Depression nor Outrage

A reflection...

Neither hope nor depression nor outrage is a strategy. What is required is a plan, a good design containing downstream alternatives so that it survives contact with the enemy. In a society where depression and outrage are only faintly counterbalanced by impotent hope, the only plans finding success are those whose chief aim is the destruction of that society.

If we reject that outcome then we must determine how to reason together and fight for the survival of our society instead of only fighting each other. An important first step is getting our emotions under control.
