I'll just leave you with this: I think it's difficult for people to consider the complexity of what it is to be human. We love complex characters in drama, at least the brighter members of the species do, but in our everyday dealings with other people we tend to lack that grasp of the complexity within even the most simpleminded person. It's not even a matter of the scared, reluctant kid screwing up his life by shooting someone in a botched robbery when he could have gone to college and lived happily in the suburbs had he had one more positive role model. I'm talking about the guy who shot a guy twice, point blank in the face, can barely read, but breaks down Hamlet with a critical eye that I wish more of my college-bound students were capable of and worries about his daughters' safety despite being perfectly comfortable with the way his world works, that strong-eat-the-weak culture of gangs and prison. We even tend to deny our own potential for evil that we keep safely buried thanks to training and circumstance. How exactly do you balance the absolutism of the right and wrong of morality with the relativism of reality and manage to understand and deal with others coming from different places without forsaking right and wrong?
Whoever can figure out that puzzle and convince the majority of the rest of us of his or her answer's truth to the point that we act on that instead of what we're used doing would pretty much explode into a rapidly expanding wad of energy that would destroy the world. But what a way to go.
