First thing in the morning thought...

(This is one of those "first thing in the morning" thoughts. So, I apologize if it is not fully formed.)

We're all basically the same. White. Black. Muslim. Jew. Republican (kinda). Whovian. We all have, basically, the same wants and needs. Many of us fear that we won't be able to satisfy those wants and needs, that someone will take away that which satisfies those wants and needs.

  And I can't help but wonder how much of that fear is just selfishness with a slightly more acceptable costume. I wonder how much misery and death and pain and suffering might simply go away if we stopped justifying our selfishness by calling it fear.

 Probably a great deal.
