Breaking Good

Watched the latest episode of "Breaking Bad" - one more to go.

Time to project my worldview on this epic mess.

There is no evil here.

Walter is clear: I made mistakes but my motives were innocent - I was just trying to take care of my family.

And he is right. That's how I see it too: to me it's the motives that count. Motivationally we are all innocent.

Walter White - as I see it - is not a bad man: he is a man trying to take care of his family and doing his sucky narcissistic best.

And, in my experience of this life, this is more of a rule than an exception.

The motivational good tends to break bad.

Ordinary perfection. What can I say...
