I would rather have a nice kitchen table than provide 20 people with clean water for the next 20 years.
I made that choice. It was a completely rational choice. It was my preferred desire.
Yet, intellectually, I'm aware that the choice was incorrect.
So, I don't need more education. I need to change that which I desire. That's religion. Re-prioritizing our passions based on a transformed way of seeing the world.
