The trouble with hindsight

There really is no such thing as foresight. Well, there is sort of. But mostly it's just hindsight made good.

Anyway, the trouble with it is, nobody really much is enchanted with what actually happened. Most people would rather hear something that has a moral, or something to raise their spirits, or something that supports their view of the world, or something that entertains them. Most people require meaning. So, the best way to get yourself lynched - is to tell it like it is. To just say how meaningless and illusory it all was. And forever will be, to some degree or another. You see, you just can't tell people that life is an utterly pointless exercise, always has been, always will be. Or can you?
