Stealing your children’s Fruit Loops
by Regis Boff
Morality does not spontaneously spring from inside us. Humans, even today, can’t be trusted to do the right thing without divine policing. A sad but unarguable truth.
Kindness in our species has been under advancement since the first apes whistled and remains a struggle in progress.
Keeping humankind from barbarity has always been a team sport amongst the Gods.
People never appreciate how many deities, over thousands of years, it has taken to prevent modern-day fathers from stealing food from their children.
Not thieving your kid’s Fruit Loops at breakfast is, of course, not exactly the equivalent of a refusal to rape a Sabine,” but it also is not a zenith of self-improvement either.
