Is It Me Or Is It Them?

"Is it me or is it them?"

Most people never even consider the question. Of course it's them!

People with the psychological sophistication to ask the question most often choose "me", and crumble into a neurotic morass of indecision and self-questioning. Good things can grow from this, but it takes a lot of time (roughly 45 years in my case).

Those who choose "them" certainly have ample evidence of widespread stupidity and madness to draw upon. Such people are good to go, ad long as they can keep ignoring their own crazy stupidity.

The only rational course is to declare "both," and tolerate the paradox (without being grim about it).
