Steve's being a typical dude. Life isn't worth living if there isn't some constant ACTION going on.
The Heaven on Earth utopia as commonly depicted by New Agers is (should be) an average man's nightmare. (Mine too.)
(I'm not saying that every normal man should want more war and destruction, but in that peaceful utopia they'd be bored to tears. I'm sure there's a middle ground somewhere. We can expand our array of good-bad experiences without more of the same (the same wars, the same people living in extreme poverty, the same ashholes running your governments).)
