Why The Search For A Utopia Is Doomed To Fail

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 21:59:56 +0000

(image) The belief that humans are perfectible leads, inevitably, to mistakes when ‘a perfect society’ is designed for an imperfect species. There is no best way to live because there is so much variation in how people want to live.

Greeting Cards Are Cliches. Often Trite. So Why Do We Find Them Meaningful?

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 20:03:10 +0000
