I was blogging with someone named Toby the other day when it seemed to me his ideas might have unrecognized negative consequences. I respond by saying "the road to Hell is paved with good intentions".
What startled me was his reply: "... the road to Heaven is lined with bad intentions, which is also absurd!". As you know, I simply love looking at the same thing from different perspectives and I had never quite thought of this from quite this perspective.
I had thought of totalitarianism and how the universe is the ultimate totalitarian mistress. But I had not thought of it quite like this and I immediately realized he was right/wrong as it was not absurd at all. It was just another rose by any other name does not smell as sweet issue and the realization made me chuckle.
So when I saw this tonight, I had to smile and thought I would pass it on for fun.
