Quote by Craig Brown
Journalism could be described as turning one's enemies into money.
This quote suggests that journalism is often driven by a profit motive, where one can exploit conflicts and controversies to gain financial benefits. It implies that journalists may prioritize sensationalism and dramatization to attract attention and generate revenue, even if it means portraying their subjects or opponents as enemies to achieve financial gain. This interpretation emphasizes the commercial aspects of the media industry and raises questions about the ethical boundaries of journalistic practices in relation to objectivity and truthfulness.
We are here because over billions of years, countless variables fell into place, any of which could have taken another path. We are essentially a beautiful fluke, as are the millions of other species with which we share this planet. Our cells are composed of atoms and dust particles from distant galaxies, and from the billions of living organisms that inhabited this planet before us.
The reality is that we're all in the wilderness, and we have to survive on our own, and things constantly change and if we don't accept that, then we're just trying to fool ourselves. But the beauty of wilderness is that sometimes you can wake up in the morning and feel so sweet and whole.
What people fear most about tragedy is its randomness - a taxi cab jumps the curb and hits a pedestrian, a gun misfires and kills a bystander. Better to have some rational cause and effect between incident and injury. And if cause and effect aren't possible, better that there at least be some reward for all the suffering.
