These are some questions I’ve been pondering lately
When can idealism become dangerous?
My answer would be if the idealism loses touch with the aspirations and needs of the people and becomes an ideological end in and of itself.
Is there anything wrong with thinking idealistically, with not only hoping but actively pursuing it?
This is a quote from the afterword of Voice of the Night, a novel by Dean Koontz.
“None of us can ever save himself, we are the instrument of one another’s salvation, and only by the hope that we give to others do we lift ourselves out of the darkness into light.”
Do you think this quote is true?
Are you a realist or an idealist, or maybe a combination of both?
Please Comment! Would love feedback.
