Being Romantic

when you work with numbers it is mostly about: "0", "1" and "greater than one" cases.
0, 1, ..., N, ..

but when it comes to people, it would be about "1", "2" and "some".

I suppose, being romantic is to make yourself understand, to understand, and/or to act like you understand that
"2" and "some" are no longer in the same category.

"James Farmer Jr.: In Texas they lynch Negroes... What was this Negro's crime that he should be hung without trial in a dark forest filled with fog... No matter what he did, the mob was the criminal. But the law did nothing. Just left us wondering, "Why?" My opponent says nothing that erodes the rule of law can be moral. But there is no rule of law in the Jim Crow south. ...not when we are lynched. St Augustine said, "An unjust law is no law at all." Which means I have a right, even a duty to resist. With violence or civil disobedience. You should pray I choose the latter." from the great debater movie
