Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwww - excluded middle!

At least there's no pretence at being balanced in the piece, it's a hatchet job.

Reality tend to become very ugly indeed if one does not adhere to one's concept of an ideal based upon healthy values.

Just sayin'.

In truth we humans, collectively and individually, make our own realities. We've managed to change the world and we've changed ourselves. Pretty neat trick really.

In large part you're right, but maybe that's why it's so hard for some people to accept there are still some things big enough that we can't change or control them.

That would be neat if the realities we make for ourselves were based on reality. Unfortunately many of our concocted realities are based on bullshit.
