COMFORT

Comfort enters the house a guest, then becomes a host ..... and soon becomes a master.

The more you have done for you the less capable you will become.

When someone offers to relieve you of some troublesome responsibilty - such as your health - they are disempowering you.

We prepare our children for adulthood by slowly placing more and more responsibility on them for fulfilling their own needs. We cease to carry them, or feed them, or wash them, and require that they do these things themslelves.

When a nanny state takes responsibilty for so much of our lives we are disempowered and returned to the dependency of childhood.

We are obliged to ask and are punished for disobedence, like a child, though our actions, like the child's, are not criminal - merely undesirable.

We have higher functions of mind and, when we do not excercise them, they atrophy and the finer aspects of humanity go down into atavism.

The history of mankind is of a striving ever upward, into the light of knowledge; let us not be returned to primaeval darkness because we were lazy and sought comfort.
