A Reason to Carry a Big Stick
Today, I present to you my third and final installment of recommended reading. The first story, To Build a Fire, concerned how the wildness of nature is both fair and amoral at the same time. The second story, The War Prayer, concerned the inherent cruelty of the human race. Today, I share with you a story that transcends both of these ideas. It moves beyond the morality of human civilization and the deadly harshness of the natural world and describes something that is… supernatural? The story is so incredible, it is nearly unbelievable, if not for the source.
