Destruction

It’s a sad fact of life that it’s much easier to be destructive than constructive.

The recent bombings in Boston is our latest major reminder of this.

We’ll never be able to prevent determined, misguided, people from doing great harm to innocent people and property.

But, one thing we can do is to try to avoid reacting stupidly and adding our own self-inflicted damage to that of the attackers.

That will make us better off, and remove some of the incentive from the next would-be attackers.
