← Tragic hero: Laurie Taylor interviews Terry Eagleton

Eagleton: "a (liberal) humanism like Dawkins's and possibly that held by Hitchens isn't worth all that much. It's too easy."

If it's hard, it's only because we (humans) make things hard for ourselves, due to our collective stupidity. I look around the world, and I see so many things people doing things that we simply do not need to do.

If I may paraphrase Thom Yorke: "we do it to ourselves, we do. That's what really hurts." Simplify, simplify!
