    The mind can conjure up some really ugly ideas, but only we can act on them.

    Speak for your own mind. My mind has never even once had a dangerous or ugly idea. I'm pure and above the rest of humanity! Mom told me so.

    Dangerous may also be good ideas.

    American war of Independence sounded like a really dangerous idea at the time.

    At the time! A dangerous idea at the time, you say? Have seen what came of the Revolution? Have you seen us these days? Hello! America to Rival. America to Rival. Come in, Rival. :D





    Just teasing you. I know what you really meant.

    Dangerous to whom?
    I once heard a story about a guy who thought it would be great to be nice to people for a change. That was dangerous to the elites and they nailed him to a piece of wood.
    A scenario that got repeated in history several times.

    Exactly!
    Ideas of any stripe can be threatening to some group or other, especially if they're coercively promoted.

    While it had its downsides, the alternative was unpalatable.
    Imagine being ruled by inbred royalty wearing powdered wigs.
    Let me show you....


    Anyway, I like entertaining dangerous ideas.
    It's interesting, & some might be worth trying.
    Tis all about choosing them wisely.
