09:19 pm: The four noble truths

The four noble truths of buddhism, restated:

1) The vast majority of us are suffering.
2) More than likely, you are suffering because you are an idiot.
3) If you were less of an idiot, you would probably suffer less.
4) Just keep going along those lines. It’s a good idea.

A corollary to 1 and 2 is that most people are idiots.

A further observation is that if you want to help reduce suffering, reducing idiocy is a good start.

Jim Infantino paraphrases the 4 NTs in one of his songs:

"There is a pain, there is a cause, there is a goal, there is a way."

The song brilliant. ... and it's called "Cut Off Your Head".
