Titanic Thinking

I want to take a stand against "Titanic thinking" (copyright MH 2012)

By that I mean the kind of thinking that says that Leonardo DiCaprio character is better off having known true love and dying than if he had never met the woman in the first place.

Had he never won tickets to the Titanic maiden voyage he would have been WAAAAY BETTER OFF!

Even having won the tickets, he would have been better off never having run into the woman because if he had not, given the kind of hustling resourceful character that he was, the odds of him surviving as many others  have were pretty good.

The romanticized notion that this was somehow good for him is crap. It was not, he died.

She lived and had a nice life.
