Wrong

Random thought of the day... I think I've been wrong about something (yes, hard to believe, I know). Always wanting to please other people is a terrible way to bring them peace and happiness. It's sad, but it seems that sometimes we have to actually create conflict in order to solve it. In peace studies, they call it 'structural violence', where the whole framework of the situation is wrong, so you can't solve things from within that framework. You have to tear down and rebuild. This is true with nations and with people.
