Couple Murdered Trying To Prove Humans Are Kind

I am genuinely saddened to read that an American couple in their 20s have been killed after riding their bikes through an Islamic-State claimed territory, in an attempt to prove “humans are kind.”

As per The Caldron Pool, last year Jay Austin and Lauren Geoghegan both quit their jobs to document a yearlong journey around the world. Throughout their travels the couple set out to demonstrate that human beings are inherently good.

“You read the papers and you’re led to believe that the world is a big, scary place,” Mr Austin wrote on his blog. “People, the narrative goes, are not to be trusted. People are bad. People are evil.”

“I don’t buy it. Evil is a make-believe concept we’ve invented to deal with the complexities of fellow humans holding values and beliefs and perspectives different than our own… By and large, humans are kind. Self-interested sometimes, myopic sometimes, but kind. Generous and wonderful and kind.”

On day 369, the couple were biking in formation with a group of other tourist on a panoramic stretch of road in southwestern Tajikistan. “It was there, on July 29, that a carload of men who believed to have recorded a video pledging allegiance to the Islamic State spotted them.

“A grainy cellphone clip recorded by a driver shows what happened next: The men’s Daewoo sedan passes the cyclists and then makes a sharp U-turn. It doubles back, and aims directly for the bikers, ramming into them and lurching over their fallen forms. In all, four people were killed,” including Mr Austin and Ms Geoghegan.

Their deaths do not contradict Mr Geoghegan's point that "by and large humans are kind". However, it does show that not ALL humans are kind or decent.

It also underscores the point that, under the Nanny state many people have forgotten, it is very important to exercise commonsense when taking day to day decisions (be they small or life changing).

Commonsense cannot be left in the hands of Nanny, it is down to each and everyone of us to exercise it!

    The theory that humans are basically kind is rubbish, but that is uneducated Americans for you. Clearly neither of these people had taken the time to read Lord of the Flies.

    Trying to prove that people are nice by riding your bike through a lawless, Muslim shit tip is foolish in the extreme.

    They died of naivety.
