australia’s got a lot of fucked up shit going on but at least we can say our last mass shooting was 18 years ago
because after it happened we placed higher restrictions on gun ownership
because that’s the logical fucking thing to do
There are two types of people in this world. You have the dreamers and then you have the realists.
The dreamers are those who have their heads way up in the clouds. To them, anything is possible. They’re in their own world, nothing is too far out of reach. They are living in a fairy tale realm, masked behind their good intentions. In short, they are idealistic about almost everything.
The realists however, are those who understand the world and have their heads on level. They see things from a realistic and logical point of view. They know what they can and cannot do, so they stick to that. It’s not that they’re pessimistic, but their way of thinking is more practical. The world doesn’t let them down because they’ve worked out not to expect too much.
Now, the dreamers will say that realists are too narrow minded and the realists will retaliate by saying that the dreamers are impractical.
However, I believe that dreamers and realists are good for each other. The dreamers will always be soaring to higher grounds, but the realists will be there to help anchor them back to earth if they soar too high. In return the dreamers can help the realists to take the first steps off the ground."
