who the fuck targets kids at a concert.  Pieces of shit killing kids.  Doesn't seem like any amount of suffering is enough for these fucks.  Humans suck ass.

Sometimes I think Humans are the most hideous species on the planet.

I refuse to judge humanity as a monolith.  Not that I don't understand the sentiment at times like this, of course.  Regardless, let us help humanity be better.

The attacker wants to drag us down, to drag humanity down to the gutter, where they can win. Don't hand them a victory. 

 

Humanity is stronger than it thinks it is.

Let's not shit too profusely on Humanity for the actions of one man.

I don't think Humanity as a whole deserves that.

I'm part of Humanity and so are you. Remembering the vastness of how many millions upon millions of people out there are equally as shocked and horrified as us, suddenly I feel less alone.

With regards to the divergence, despite the horror of this event, I don't think my assessment that we're on the preferable path has really changed.  Based on Michael's phrasing, this divergence seemed to deal primarily with international relations.  Either things would head toward more compromise and negotiation between nations, or toward the drawing of hardline positions and more dangerous brinksmanship like we saw in April with North Korea. 

Unfortunately, I don't think terrorism is going to be going anywhere until after we've resolved some of the other problems facing the world.  Barbarians like Daesh thrive in environments of suffering and injustice.

@Sam K I'm with you there. Extremism and suffering are things we will have to contend with indefinitely. But I'm feeling a sense of moving away, in the larger picture, from the worst, at least for now. I'm also getting a sense of solidarity, lately, when talking to friends from other countries for examples; we're facing similar issues in terms of economics, politics, and social issues, and it's causing me to feel a kind of binding together that I could see being a positive thing.
