the reasonable man

The reasonable man would never consciously adopt the confused or the influenced by confusion (entropy) or self-interest, weak or nonexistent morality of the masses. The reasonable man would either create a valid philosophy or adopt the logical morality of the few and charismatic minds of the world. And the charismatic minds working together would positively change the world.

I composed this ekphrasis to contradict another one, expressed by George Bernard Shaw:

"The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man."
George Bernard Shaw
