I agree with you and all with an ounce of sense agree with your point. Unfortunately the ultimate law of the universe — probability balance — doesn’t care. It is a ruthless system of balance that says that creation must always, at some point in time, be offset by destruction — stars are born and stars die, just as we humans are subjugated to this indifferent law, we, too, are born and we must die.

It is for this reason of balance that after a few decades of incredible creations by man the world moves relentless toward humankind’s final offset. The doomsday clock is still ticking, but probably for not much longer. The Trumpster has arrived like an angel of death, spewing forth his evil hatred.
