Sunrise — looking east and west.

It was one of those mornings when the eastern view is distinctive:

But the clouds in the west are sumptuous and so there is a glorious western sunrise:

Ann should walk in Wisconson's black open areas to see if they're as big as the white ones.

I was going to say something, I'm an idiot.

In old halls or snooker halls you'll see me ripping the green - that ball, that ball, that ball to my eye - oh but let's have another whisky, he's not to bad, a blackeye won't hurt him, a scar won't kill him. Let's bet again.

I go into bars like one would go into Hell - once gloomy, sulphurous places now like coffins - the mournfullest mournful are still there, lifting this 'be' beyond. And, when I'm expelled, it is an exorcism

Then she DEFINITELY better do it because, historically, white guys are the shit.

I heard Thomas Jefferson compared to R. Kelly the other day and the funny part was, if Thom was here now, and told who R. Kelly is, he'd be more offended by the comparison for something other than R. Kelly being a rapist.

This is what Hannah Arendt discovered - how ordinary, boring, fascism is - how being a secretary, a typist, a court reporter, an assistant shopkeeper - ordinary joe curls you in it's embrace. It begins by very small demands - and everyone thinks they are a reasonable 'sacrifice' - and those who object are just 'anti-social' - they become 'criminals', later - for the 'social good'. My God, do we learn nothing from history!! Later those who object must be removed - because they 'infect' them - from society.

Fascism is not about 'Authoritarianism' but about acceptance and belief. If more than half your country ''believes', or, let's say 'needs' el Duce then they shall have him. El Duce was an expression of the Italian lower middle class, upper working class and half the educated elite. However you might see it now (you, with your lack of historicism) at the time it seemed quite rational - long before the monstrosities that happened after. I'm only saying this, not as an apologist for El Duce, heaven forbid, but as a cautionary tale of what's happening now. The Pandemic is over in any objective, rational measurement but the irrational reaction to it, which started from the beginning, which is in all of us, is far from over, in fact, it's probably just begun, hence, the arbitrary strangeness of it's actions. How can rationality defend itself from irrationality - it can't, it must lay down and die. The tarantella of these twenties is going to not only terrify, not only be stupid, but will be irresistible.

Wow. I'd hang the last one in my living room.

Well take eichmann, the former vaccuum cleaner salesman, (shirley) was very methodical in his banality, maybe arendt who was the student of heidegger, and connected in other ways, minimized the horror on purpose,

Lewis said...

Three times I trolled you - sorry

Lewis said...

What can I say - I'm in love with you.

Why, thank you!

That's a good thing, right?

R. Who?

He had a cod piece and everything.

Does Eldridge Cleaver make the rapey history of white men go away?

Doesn't it? And many more? Certainly tends to mush together and collapse your special pleading into a broader case of man's inhumanity to man, which, like the poor, you will always have with you. No solution, no problem.

Just do and be the best you can, here, now, and stop worrying what Ook did to Oog back in the caveman days. That won't help you.
