When a strategy is failing, it’s natural to assume that a different strategy would succeed.

Natural but silly. For us pessimists, snug in the bosom of despair, not every problem has a solution. If you’re in a jam and can’t see a way out, consider the possibility that there isn’t one.

Fatalism isn’t a happy philosophy but it does mesh nicely with the reality that life isn’t fair and people (fine, most people) are terrible.
