You know,….George is talking about the big picture of life. He is correct in many ways but not in others. The real issue is “should we try to do what we can, or succumb to apathy?” Yes, the further you back away from the Earth, the more peaceful it looks. From far enough away in space, you’d never think the Earth had any problems going on at all. But that is only distancing yourself from trouble, not choosing to address the issues. Do we even have any issues? I think we do,….otherwise George would not have any material for his skit. I guess if you can’t solve a problem, the next best thing is to make fun of it,….it takes away the fear factor.
George was great in that he saw through all the bullshit and was a voice for the people. WE could all vent through George.
