  1. Dear Kitty, thank you for this post on Brecht. Indeed being “good” can be very difficult and a magnet for trouble of all kinds. When I have over two hours free I will view the full production. The trailer and the 14:50 minute one are very intriguing.
    Can one decide to be innately good and then decide to be “bad” easily? Is there not a difference between those who pick when to be “good”–when it suits them and others who cannot deny behaving in accord with their true nature? Of course society often does NOT reward goodness. I wonder why that is?
    “We found a good human being.” Why is that so hard to find?
