What are you doing?

What what you be doing, if you could?

What have you done so far, toward your being able to do it?

Efficient, unrighteous & unkind people, with a healthy appetite for self-command & maybe an unhealthy appetite for command over others, ask themselves these questions.

Youths, acutely aware of injustices, who would be righteous & kind, tend, therefore, to find these questions repellant, as tho ONLY unrighteous & unkind people ask them.

Those who would be effectively righteous & kind, in order to survive & to live more satisfying lives, being of greater & greater service to one another & to those whose suffering is not due to their own stubborn counterproductive behavior, would gain as much by asking themselves these questions.

No, they’d gain a great deal more—if they can survive while the evolutionary effort thereby induced has its effects.
