"Spirtually", I like to think I'm on the same side as you. In practice.... well. Let's just say I cannot argue with anything you said. Other than maybe this: The creepy thing is that it seems humanity is in a self harming zeal where any ideal of spiritual behavior is lost, and replaced with what ends up as anger. I'm not too convinced this has ever not been the case. Spirituality and anger are sadly often two sides of the same coin. Humans are meaning-making animals.
