The Impotent Fury of the Privileged

"The world is a saddening mess, of unfathomable complexity and the simplest cruelty. And yet, rather than raging or weeping, most of us still manage to eat snacks, do crosswords and occasionally wash. But what if, what if we heave our compassion from wherever it's buried and with courage enough to seem naïve or underinformed or oblivious to futility, we reach for something better? Something more engaged, more humane and less snack-based."
