Millennial Couple Bikes Near ISIS Territory to Prove ‘Humans Are Kind’ and Gets Killed

“Evil is a make-believe concept we’ve invented to deal with the complexities of fellow humans.”

An idealistic young American couple was killed in an Islamic State-claimed terrorist attack last month while on a cycling trip around the world.

Jay Austin and Lauren Geoghegan, both 29, last year quit their office jobs in Washington, DC, to embark on the journey. Austin, a vegan who worked for the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, and Geoghegan, a vegetarian who worked in the Georgetown University admissions office, decided that they’re were wasting their lives working.

    O que assusta é que pela Europa há milhões e os governos de França, Alemanha, Bélgica, Holanda e outros são a 100%.

    Era capaz de apostar que na Universidade eram dos que boicotavam conferências de Jordan Peterson e só frequentavam “safe spaces”.

  3. Segundo o próprio Snopes (um fact checker tão isento quanto o a raposa num congresso de galinhas) eles morreram mesmo.

    E eles escreveram isto:

    You watch the news and you read the papers and you’re led to believe that the world is a big, scary place. People, the narrative goes, are not to be trusted. People are bad. People are evil. People are axe murderers and monsters and worse.

    I don’t buy it. Evil is a make-believe concept we’ve invented to deal with the complexities of fellow humans holding values and beliefs and perspectives different than our own — it’s easier to dismiss an opinion as abhorrent than strive to understand it. Badness exists, sure, but even that’s quite rare. By and large, humans are kind. Self-interested sometimes, myopic sometimes, but kind. Generous and wonderful and kind. No greater revelation has come from our journey than this.

    Agora já compraram, pagaram e liquidaram a factura.
