The World Is Not Ours To Save

Such side taking is a very human thing to do. It allows us to pretend that the problem is the other and to avoid facing the truth dwelling somewhere near the heart of every conflict: that under every balance of injustice, humanity itself is the problem. And this is the reason that so few of us, despite our words to the contrary, actually want to save the world. We usually just want our side, whatever it may be, to win.
