Rational action theory my good friend tells me doesn’t work in practice.

Or at least, it falls apart as its causal and not multi-directional.

It’s the problem with agency and the world not being linear.

Darned it.

The issue is not agency, nor choice; rather it comes down to perspective.

Rational self-defence in one person’s eyes is not the same to someone else.

As with life.

Ultimately, we all ask ourselves…

How long can this go on for?
