17. You got it. I'm afraid you got it right.

Forced to endure the stomach wrenching reality of death by a routine traffic stop, by a routine traffic cop. That it's routine. The suspicion that every promise of luck or hope comes with a trap; for the life, the mind, the soul, revocable by the sickeningly powerful lies of political men. All the while, clinging, against timeless odds, to sincere respectful memory of the daily, incredible, un-speaking, courageous dignity of so many heroes. Decades of disappointment.

A life of quiet contemplation of life's inequities is the realm of the privileged idle. To live face to face with certain fear every day, year after year is more the quiet desperation. This nation's sainted forefathers didn't so much create a new nation as they distilled horror and enshrined unspeakableness. To see our future, look toward the demolished civilizations of central Asia with their incredible riches and fame lost to memory. Where, today, is mighty Samarkand?

A word for my timid white brethren. The animal that kneed that black dude would be on your neck in a minute if he felt immune from prosecution. Because he likes to do that. It's gratifying for him. And you can't stop him. Yet fire still purifies things, if only for a moment.
