Michel Dumontier recounted a scene he witnessed recently. (I think it was him, but no matter. I’m also probably mangling the story.) A parent was coping with a wailing, tantrumy child. The parent tried a variety of placating measures, all, predictably, which failed.
Finally, the parent grabbed the child and said, “Life is hard.”
It is indeed.
Unfortunately, recognition of that fact doesn’t really help.
