Eve Black: You people are not worth the effort. The denial is too strong. Rather than look at reality the way it is . . . you rejoice in the beauty and wonder (or whatever you said) of the world. That's consistent with denying there's global warming, denying that spanking is harmful . . .

There are many things worse than spanking--such as being forced by heat and smoke to jump 90 stories to the ground, where your body turns into pink mist and a mangled pulp that looks like stewed tomatoes trying to wear clothes. The point being that a beautiful butterfly swirling around a baby in its carriage is as much a part of life as sudden and cruel deaths.

Denying the butterfly doesn't make you wiser or more profound than someone who denies the shattered body. It just makes you gloomier.
