Further evidence of Universal Truths...

No matter how screwed up people may be, deep down inside we normal (ahem...) folks all share commonalities with the loons. The ties that bind all people together are sometimes not easily seen. The more radical the person and his or her views are the more foggy this notion can be. Barring exceptions and extremes, most folks know what it is like to lose all stresses and worries of life after playing with a puppy. Or the feeling of triumph shared when your team or what ever it is you stand behind is victorious. Or the feeling that you could just choke the life out of that person who abuses his or her loved ones and those that truly care about the shit despite all of his/her faults.

We have laws, regulations and ideals in this world that don't always agree with one another in our society. Our society has been in flux for decades now but I know eventually certain truths will become self-evident. By simple notion that our evolution depends on it is really an understatement of the importance. Take the quote below, for instance. Would you disagree with a genuine truth simply on the grounds of what kind of person articulated it?

"The National Government will regard it as its first and foremost duty to revive in the nation the spirit of unity and cooperation. It will preserve and defend those basic principles on which our nation has been built. It regards Christianity as the foundation of our national morality, and the family as the basis for national life." -Adolph Hitler, February 1st, 1933.
