There Is Nothing Contradictory In Believing In Autonomy And Dumb Luck At The Same Time

Above is a picture I took in Downtown Houston earlier today.

You see that there is a green light at the traffic light, but that there is also a barricade stopping folks from moving forward.

We are told by some that we always have the green light of autonomy and of our own hard work.

Yet there is also the barricade that many face of circumstance and bad luck.

I belive in autonomy, hard work, circumstance for both good and ill, and luck.

I don’t see why anybody thinks these things are contradictory.

All these things are part of everyday life.

Everything we need to understand about the world around us is found in everyday life.
