Chaos And Slaughter Is the Goal

The outcome of the battle is unimportant. What matters is the chaos, and the slaughter. ~Neil Gaimman

The more I hear politicians speak the less I believe they are extolling the virtues of their position and the more they are gadflies stoking the masses into chaos in a twisted plan to help them win their war. What war?

The Mind Virus

Tell him that we fucking reprogrammed reality. Tell him that language is a virus and that religion is an operating system and that prayers are just so much fucking spam. ~Technical Boy from Neil Gaiman’s American Gods.

In a post-truth reality, the powers that be garner popular opinion by reprogramming reality aligning it with the story casting themselves in the brightest light while casting a cold blue shadow on their opponent like the shadow’s moon of a frigid winters night during the short day solstice, short of breath for light is breathing.

Tipping The Scales

Perhaps one did not want to be loved so much as to be understood. ~Geroge Orwell

I have given up on romantic love as a two way street in my life. It is not in the cards I’ve chosen to play.

Reducing The Number of Abortions

For some unknown reason, this [anti-abortion] branch of Christianity cherishes the unborn and hates the living person. ~Vine Deloria Jr.

What is it that draws a person to worship the velutinous flesh of the preborn only to reject them when the flesh squeezes through the birth canal and walks the earth as a post born?

Self Indictment

Until the lions have their own historians the hunting stories will continue to glorify the hunter. ~Eduardo Galeano

I love Zinn’s book, “People’s History of the United States” because it tells the story of these United States from the perspective of the hunted instead of the usual sanitized hunter point of view.
