Capable of anything

  • Wilson: "You can be a real jerk sometimes, you know that?"
    House: "Yeah. And you're the good guy."
    Wilson: "At least I try."
    House: "As long as you're trying to be good, you can do whatever you want."
    Wilson: "And as long as you're not trying, you can say whatever you want."
    House: "So between us, we can do anything. We can rule the world!"
  • -----------------------------------------------
The ability t0 do anything translates most commonly to the ability to do anyone. The lack of personal control is seen as unnecessary when one possesses the power to control everyone else.

The irony of an incapacitated conscience is that it allows the capacity for unbridled atrocities; fueled by the inability to recognize the difference between one's perception and reality. Whenever the limited abilities of any individual is coupled with (nearly) unlimited power, the devastating consequences point out the capability for evil that accompanies all collective action.

What we say and do should be not "whatever we want", but instead the best of which we are capable; this mandates that we trying not to rule the world, but to rule ourselves.

rape of the frock

So instead of using their time and energy to solve the rape crime problem; they instead abrogate any responsibility by bearing false witness against their neighbors. Accusing others of instigating sin releases them from any accountability, and makes them accessories to the sin and the felony. Expedient and convenient, but in no way just nor moral.

This not the act of a love, but of a fearful, cowardly hate. The proper response to this is "It isn't my attire that causes sin, but the hearts that embrace it. Rapists don't need a reason, just an excuse... and by providing them with one, we see where your true sympathies lie".
