You Are Wrong



No, you are wrong.
In an inauthentic society,
most feelings are illegitimate,
as are most thoughts.
Humans are adaptation incarnate,
so most notions of human psychology
that don't take their environment
into account are reductionist fantasies.
You are wrong to say that love is dominant.
You are wrong to say that hate is dominant.
All explanations are partial and provisional,
dependent upon presumption and precondition.
There is always a world in which you'd love me.
There is always a world in which you'd hate me.
