People should be able to enjoy their lives...
they only get one shot... so why squander it?

Ah, but what if you enjoyed being a pirate and life was all about rape'en and pillag'en?

Well, that hurts everyone... certainly many... so no...
You don't get to "be happy" at the expense of other people.

What about her?
She wasn't happy... she left him... he's devastated. He's been drinking ever since...
That was hurt'en...


Hurting who? He's devastated? ok... what was she? Does she have to live "unhappy" in order to keep him happy?
She committed to a shared life... no a subservient one.
No... there is no comparison to the pirate.

So you're saying every man for himself?

No... we are communities and we are best served by keeping that in mind.
However, you have to be responsible for your own happiness.
If you rely on someone else to define and fulfil your happiness...
...then you are basically a parasite.

So, are you happy?

Indescribably happy... and you?
