Maybe you are alone or maybe you are married with sons or daughters, hopefully.
What is sure is that, if you are not alone, you have someone to trust in and there is someone who trusts in you. Because love must be founded on trust and loyalty. Then, we have to consider that mankind is founded on love.
This syllogism should end with the sentence “Mankind is founded on trust and loyalty”.
Okay it seems true... well, it should be true.
But something happens.
Easily, sometimes, there could be a moment when everything goes in the background, when your desires pass over trust and loyalty, to reach the pleasure and the satisfaction, given by money, success, for example, or sex…
The “problem” are not the “bad” desires, in terms of a “ephemeral status deviations”, but the thing that you can “easily” forget that someone trust in you… and no matter how long this “deviation” lasts.
What makes me “curious”, is how the pleasure of a “deviation”, as ephemeral as intense, can satisfy more than the pride to be Loyal, Trustworthy, True, Sincere. In other terms, how does an orgasm, metaphor or not, chased by your eyes wide shut, can enhance your happiness more than looking at the mirror with your eyes wide open.
Again, our desires are normal. But when we sacrifice them on the altar of respect, we could give Mankind a shiny future. This is not only a matter of sex, but It could be applied to every aspect of our life.
Sadly, it is an illusion.
Human means Weak.
Being human simply works as a “continuous recovery” of errors, and not a “continuos enhancement” of values.
And the contrast between lust and love can explain, after merging them with the importance of the right Values for mankind, why the human race will end shortly, if we do not change our perspective of what is valuable and what is not.
A dream, i suppose, anyway.
