Assholery, a PSA

We live in a society of assholes.

We buy a new car and become assholes. We get the merest whiff of influence and start acting like assholes. We give our cops sweeping new powers and they immediately start acting like assholes. We even attract assholes from overseas. In the news, at least, assholes are everywhere.

This isn’t just South Africa. Everywhere you go, it seems that assholes are an integral part of why the world sucks so often, for so many. And the cause? The cause, I’m afraid, is us. We do this, every single one of us. We may not be as brazen (or stupid) as the guys who make the news, but we’re all just as guilty of occasionally assuming that things should apply to them and not us.

So, when next you’re tempted by the dark side, remember the one commandment.

Remember: only you can stop assholery.
