142. From a different angle
Edited on Wed Dec-29-04 02:53 PM by PATRICK
It's a lousy time if you are in Iraq, unless you are a martyr insurgent.
It's also not so hot being doomed or slowly murdered by profiteers with tunnel vision and zero humanity, but plenty of delusional fantasy beliefs. When all good men are belittled and trivial asses exalted. When lies shout from the most modern conveniences while the truth crawls in primeval ditches. When institutional glory wears a dry soul pinched banker's visage, masking dry rot.

Interesting times. I prefer the the more nuanced sentiment of JFK. The waste is appalling, the humiliation of the species in its advanced tech and education and globalization is universally demeaning. It seems we either survive our goofiness or die dumb for nothing in particular.

In hindsight i begin to see the wisdom of Buddha regarding desire and emotions. In hindsight they appear destructive, trivial and plain wrong.
Life and reason are imperatives. Hard work indeed.

Bend the knee to the absolute craziest and dumbest and most evil of the human race? And call sh*t perfume for the soul? Forget it. I am an insurgent for the human promise, currently occupied by age old bloody failures of the discredited past. Let's make America what we thought it was and what it can be in the best hands for the truest aspirations of all decent people.

I prefer to be on this side with these people no matter what the odds. Mars also is looking attractive. I've been to Canada. I would like to make America safe for Canada too.
