Yes, despair. The cliche "too smart for his own good" comes to mind. Post-Christian Western Civilization has grown so smart it can't think of any reason life is worth living.

Views expressed are always my own and not my employer's, my church's, my family's, my neighbors', or my pets'. The house plants have authorized me to speak for them, however, and they always agree with me.
