It is a tragedy of the world that no one knows what he doesn’t know – for the less a man knows, the more sure he is that he knows everything. Too bad we didn’t get to know what Harambe knew. Perhaps it was that he’d rather die a meaningful death than live a meaningless life. For the tragedy of life is what dies inside a man or beast while he lives…

I don’t know what people have got against the government – it’s done nothing. And whatever the government ever deems to do, sensible Americans would prefer they do it to somebody else.
