Faith

is no more than self-justification
re-inforced by practice.


There seems to be a consensus emerging among comfortable intellectuals 
that we are a rogue species doing insane things 
for no reason other than ‘because we can, and because everyone else does’.   
The doing together gives us the ‘faith’ (communal justification) 
to continue to do ever-more-insane things 
through the power of mad technology, 
from axes - to writing - to cart-wheels
- to money - to computers.
And lo! we lament in our comfort
the mindlessness of being sapiens -

who (we are now slightly ashamed to reveal)
wiped out half of the planet’s large mammals 
even before we invented the wheel...
