At first people were amused, but then they got bored at being told falsehood was wrong. Years later, a child asked the just-man "why do you go on?" He said in the beginning he was convinced that by shouting loud enough people would listen and change. Now I continue because I don't want them to change me. End of story. 10:57:47 Meetings like this that shows him that sometimes his pessimism is wrong, and that occasionally one gesture can change people. Tonight some hope is justified.
