1138. A Day in the Life: What's It Really Like to Be an Airline Pilot for 44 Years?
“I was born in Iran and lived there until I was 13 years old. I was told that this is the best system in the world. Islam is the best religion in the world. Then I went to India and they said, no, our system is the best, and Hinduism is the best religion in the world. In 1974 I went to England and of course their system was the best. This was when the whole Irish Republican Army conflict was happening. Then I came to America when I was 17 or so and began to reflect on the obvious question: how many best religions, best systems of government, et. al. are there? What is best and what works? It then became obvious to me that each individual must trust his own judgment and make up your own mind.”
