There are many ways to kill a cat; I wonder why anyone would want to kill a cat though?
To you I present myself as being over-dressed with curiosity, but fortunately summer is here; that season where I prefer most of my belongings ‘free’, including my mind.
Looking at first principles; hypocrisy is defined as the false profession of desirable or publicly approved qualities, beliefs or feelings, especially pretence of having virtues, moral principles, or religious beliefs that one does not really possess.
Truth be told, hypocrisy is deception. But is that all we can say about it, really?
Yes, being a hypocrite is screaming winner when one has not won...is that not motivation to those who want to win? Don't people work best when they 'have' competition?
Yes, hypocrisy is ‘not having the courage to pursue good’...but does that justify not advertising ‘good’?
You know what? I am standing up for hypocrites, not because I tend to be one at times, but because I think they are courageous!
They are courageous enough to show-off what they can only desire to have. They are courageous enough to internally admit that they don't have the courage to pursue ‘good’. They are courageous enough to be hypocrites. Let's give HYPOCRITES a round of applause optimists?
