( Most of the world is safe and enjoyable if you’re not an asshole. I’m not an asshole. Particularly in other countries. And I don’t associate with assholes in other countries. Nor do I engage in the activities that assholes engage in: drinking, drugs, large groups of people, making a lot of noise, generally trying to attract attention. The world punishes you for being an asshole. And so you shouldn’t be surprised that if you do, or enjoy doing, things assholes do, that regardless of where you are, you’re being treated like an asshole. Likewise the same applies to the naive. If you think the world isn’t full of a healthy distribution of assholes, and that you don’t have to take self responsibility for avoiding assholes, and people, places, and events where assholes congregate, then you are in fact, one of the assholes. )
