Why lazyness is good

Post by philosopher » Sat Feb 02, 2019 5:38 pm

1. Lazy people don't bother going to war.
2. If everybody were lazy, there would be no wars.
3. Conclusion: If there were no wars, there would be eternal peace = good.

Thoughts?

Energetic, industrious ants fight wars.

Lazy, shiftless, no-account grasshoppers become swarming, migrating locusts.

Yes, but everybody would need to be equally lazy otherwise some more energetic soul would take advantage and enslave the others.

1. Lazy people don't bother going to war or doin' much of anything includin' workin', raisin' their brats, or wipin' their keisters after a good dump.

2. If everybody were lazy, there would be no wars cuz all everybody would starve to death.

3. Conclusion: If there were no wars, there would be eternal peace = good, cuz Earth as open air Cemetery is 'good' & 'peaceful'.

Is it embarrassing to Americans to spell words correctly? Is that part of the general anti-intellectualism?

Humans are lazy. If we weren't then we would still be hunter-gatherers--or ploughing fields by hand. Humans might enjoy killing each other or following some piece-of-shit, but that's hardly 'work' (unless you call serial killers 'industrious and hard-working').

Some human beings who are so called lazy go to war.
Other human beings who are so called lazy join the defense forces so that they do not have to go to other work, but then have to go to war.
Some other human beings who are so called lazy sit in offices, or in positions, where they just declare war, and thus are the ones causing the "going to war".

1. If human beings stopped creating so called "defense" forces, stopped declaring wars, and stopped "going to war",
2. Then there would be no more wars.
3. If there were no more wars, then Life would be somewhat better on earth.

Lazy spelling is repressed laziness surfacing.

I wondered if it was proper American spelling, which is different from English English spelling.
