131. Book Review | The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway

In Old Man and the Sea, Ernest Hemingway tells the story of an elderly fisherman in Cuba who’s struggling to make ends meet. He’s poor, and desperately so. He has a young man who helps him, and he mentors him some.

“The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.”

Ernest Hemingway

The story is a lot about grit, determination, and striving to regain the vibrancy of youth. I won’t give away the story, but it is a great embodiment of the Stoic ideal as this old man battles with nature out at sea.

If you know someone who likes adventure stories, this is a fantastic book for them. I will admit that it has points that it gets a bit slow, but it is normally short and gets back to the action quickly.

142. Don’t Attribute To Stupidity That Which Is Proven To Be Malice Conversation of Our Generation

Stupidity doesn't explain everything. And, in our culture, it seems like too many sensible people deny evidence that points to malice in favor of the stupidity explanation. I try to look at things in a charitable light and not assign motives. That said, eventually when evidence stacks up high enough, it's time to admit that what may appear accidental wasn't. And, to not allow people to simply ask questions, but insist that they're conspiracy theorists if they do, is wrong. That's why today we're going to take a look at real conspiracies that are known world-wide as well as weird occurrences that you aren't allowed to attribute malice to- or even ask about.
