Wishes for the world at the winter solstice 139

Wouldn’t it be a grand thing now if the Western world were suddenly swept by an enthusiasm for capitalism? And for earned self-esteem – earned because every Self achieved what it wanted for itself and didn’t think of looking to government to give it anything?

And wouldn’t it be splendid if every Turk, Arab, Pakistani, Albanian, Bosnian, Iranian, Indonesian, Malaysian, Bangladeshi, Somalian, Iranian, Afghan …… dropped the superstition called Islam and discovered the infinite joys of reason?

Better still if all believers in the supernatural were to make that Best of All Possible Discoveries?
