So putting thoughts like that out of your head or just not caring ... I doubt thats foolish. Damnit the last thing we need is a country walking around with 300 million super paranoid citizens.

    And its not always placidity. Sometimes its apathy. Ive reserved myself the the fact that Jihad and the like will always threaten our country. Yet I don't really care. There is naught I can truly do to stop it, and walking around with my head to the sky searching for planes is not going to help. Bah. Before I digress, saying peace of mind is and illusion for fools is like saying its crazy to be calm in a time of turmoil. Worrying isn't going to do anything.
    Exactly my point. You, despite what you are saying, do not have peace of mind. To have peace of mind is to deny that anything is wrong, or could go wrong. You have moved beyond that, into acceptance, not fear, like myself. Not having peace of mind does not mean that you are always in fear, but that you accept that things that can go wrong, can and will.

    We are reading from the same book, my friend, you just don't realize it. I am merely commenting on his love of "peace of mind," the crutch of the foolish. Or, you could argue, the fearful that are too cowardly to accept and live with that fear.

    I have peace of mind. We just seem to define it differently. You seem to think that peace of mind is only possible if theres nothing wrong in the world. Yes I accept that things can and most likely will go wrong, but you're under the misconception that knowing this bothers me. I on the other hand don't care if anything goes wrong in the world and in my apathy I am quite comfortable.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends
