Chronic remorse………….?

Chronic remorse, as all the moralists are agreed, is a most undesirable sentiment. This is the opening line of the Forward of Brave New World. The book was a required read for a class I took in College many years ago! Aldous Huxley is the Author and is to blame for what comes next in his foreword, so don’t blame me! “If you have behaved badly, repent, make what amends you can and address yourself to the task of behaving better next time. On no account brood over your wrong-doing. Rolling in the muck is not the best way of getting clean.”  Some people would like it if you showed more remorse for behaving badly! Although if they are behaving badly they need never own up to it! We have many choices in our world, unlike in the Brave New World, they only had two!
