We humans are funny creatures. Despite our affinity for positive emotion, all our empathy and happiness permeating through the pores of our oldest art and our newest social networks, we thrive off the negative. It is not imagination that fuels our economies, but greed. Love does not keep our houses warm, pride does. And when we need to lift ourselves up when all else has failed, it is not hope, but fear that gives us wings.
