“Flip a book, not a channel.”
Hehehehe. I don’t know why this makes me laugh every time.
It is a mania shared by philosophers of all ages to deny what exists and to explain what does not exist.

But it is precisely this conflict between fundamental choices which, in my opinion, characterizes so well the opposing camps which for a long time we have been in the habit of calling left and right: on the one hand, people who believe that human beings are more equal than unequal, and on the other, people who believe that we are more unequal than equal.
We can spend our lives letting the world tell us who we are. Sane or insane. Saints or sex addicts. Heroes or victims. Letting history tell us how good or bad we are. Letting our past decide our future. Or we can decide for ourselves. And maybe it’s our job to invent something better.

I drank coffee and read old books and waited for the year to end.
