“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Sometimes you're just a moron

This picture sums up perfectly my philosophy on why things happen to people. Things that we find to be unexpected, undeserved, and even tragic.

There is not always a master plan in which we only play a predetermined role. Earth is a dangerous, unpredictable planet and we've created a very dangerous and unpredictable world for ourselves. If you wreck your car, it wasn't necessarily God's plan for you, as everybody like to believe because belief in a higher power at work in their lives gives them comfort, but maybe you were a moron for texting while driving and your own stupidity wrecked your car.

It is my belief that we determine what happens to us to a far greater degree than God does by operating the strings of our lives like marionettes. But that's just me.
