Well, I'm feeling philosophical because my school reading list includes Lord of the Flies (which I just finished, and I loved) by William Golding, Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, and may (although I'm not absolutely certain) contain Night by Elie Wiesel.
So I figured that if one is to be great in the the world one must have a personal philosophy to live by and spread throughout to one's followers.
The only problem is that I can't think of one. I have it!
God is dead. God will remain dead--no, no, that's just nonsense. God being dead. Pah! Leave it to a guy with a huge mustache to come up with a silly idea like that.
Hmmmmm...It might have to do with eating. I might like that.
Although a philosophy about food...I don't know. It come across as too shallow.
Ooh! It could be about some controversy like...ummm...well, on second thought, that might get me in trouble with some people. Like marxists...and Barack Obama...
It could be about how I utterly loathe Justin Bieber! 'All men hate him because without any of the qualities of a normal man he attracts so many young women.' Except that I might get death threats from most of the female population of the U.S.
By Jehoshaphat I've got it! It'll be just what I said earlier: If one is to be great in the the world one must have a personal philosophy to live by and spread throughout to one's followers. That's a very good philosophy in and of itself; It accomplishes absolutely nothing at all except to confuse people.
