Other than that, what is there to say? My vote doesn't even count. *** And since no one really cares what I think, I'm free to think anything.
The broader story: it's NOT about "me" or my ego or seeing my name in print... I'm a fleeting ephemeral whirlwind of energy patterns and I will soon be gone...
It IS about many minds sharing information and points of view to "hopefully" arrive at a more coherent understanding of complex, dynamic, chaotic events. SO, If maybe I can add one small twig to the fire and that helps light the way for someone else, then it was worth it. I guess.
Now we get to witness the despair of late capitalism.
The grinding devolution of the democratic dream...
The end of an age. The long twilight of "western civilization." Capitalism murdered democracy.
"It's a still life water color
Of a now late afternoon
As the sun shines through the curtain lace
And shadows wash the room
And we sit and drink our coffee
Couched in our indifference
Like shells upon the shore
You can hear the ocean roar
In the dangling conversation
And the superficial sighs
The borders of our lives..."
