We think too much.

We know what’s best for us and we don’t need other people’s advice on how to run our lives.

We know what’s best for the world, for we have answers to all of the world’s problems – governance, terrorism, economics.

We are sure-footed in our decisions, unfailing in blaming some other party for our failures.

We know that everyone else around us is dumb or hypocritical or both.

We believe we are entitled – entitled to jobs, holidays, peace of mind, respect.

We also believe we are enlightened, that we have it all sorted out, from now until death.

We think too much. Of ourselves.
