Confused Man Hates on Humans, Adores Bears

In what can only be described as the ramblings of a confused man, a letter to the editor in Maine Environmental News, describes the human being as anything but…..well, human, even going to the point of saying there are just too many humans. And yet, he chooses to live and add to his perceived problem.

Dare I say, though, that while the writer of this letter points out many truths in what has become of our society, he becomes confused in his thinking that bears and humans need to live “harmoniously.” I think, if you listen closely while reading his creation, you can hear in the background, “I’d like to teach the world to sing, in perfect harmony.”

And so what’s really wrong? What’s wrong is, mostly what Mark Twain said about being successful; “You need two things: ignorance and confidence.” While this person exudes the confidence to express his beliefs, he somehow thinks he can find his answer by living “harmoniously” with bears (ignorance).

Nope! Nothing wrong here. Move along now. Move along.
