Unassailable.

The equation has changed.

Capitalism = Feudalism + Usury + Slavery

                   has become


Capitalism = Feudalism + Turbo-usury + Globalism.

(Globalism involves adapted, less visible forms of slavery.)

In the USA,

expensive prescription drugs are pushed
through aggressive advertising
by their manufacturers - sometimes with help
from Federal authorities.
Hence the Opiate Addiction Epidemic, 
which, thanks to racism, has not so badly
affected Ethnic Minorities.

Over-estimating one's potential.

Until recently, I thought that
it must be terrible to realise that
you're at least a bit stupid.
Now I realise that it's not so bad at all.

Inside the terrible crowd

you can be a tiny clearing of calm.
Inside the beautiful forest
you are a destructive force.

Many people

(I am thinking of the teachers at my semi-public school
where I was forced to play nasty, 'manly' games
and go for runs in foul weather)

- many people
prefer the ecstasy of sarcasm
to the ecstasy of orgasm.

I wonder if anyone enjoys both ecstasies together ?

A Film I watched via Netflix.

 "I Care A Lot is a damning indictment of the corruption that pollutes the courts, healthcare, for-profit elderly care and, most of all, state-sanctioned guardianship, which strips the elderly and disabled folks of their agency." - (review on Rotten Tomatoes)

Audience score a mere 35% on Rotten Tomatoes, but 6.3 on Imdb.

This wonderfully dystopian (American, therefore violent), semi-satirical thriller about the criminalisation of the American healthcare system (by doctors and lawyers) has no pleasant characters. It features a lesbian relationship between two nasty-greedies, and a sexy evil Russian hairy dwarf (Peter Dinklage) who reflect the medieval prejudices of our culture.

Double Whammy

Not only am I a precursor
of the baby-boom Me-Generation,

but also, since around 1960
I have been 'assailed' continually
by reports of famines, genocides,
civil wars...not to mention
the films and books,
now e-mails and websites
devoted to 'man's inhumanity',
humonstrousness;

and so I now most conveniently in my fugitivity
have Compassion Fatigue
from mumbling ever-uselessly
at the edge of ever more catastrophes.


Word of the Day :

 narrativize.

The greater crime (of course)

is that of bringing suffering
directly or indirectly into the world;
the lesser is to separate children definitively,
ineluctably according to their sex.


Frost in May.

When I told my farmer friend 
during a February heat-wave
here in southern France,
that I was pretty sure we'd have
frost in May, he laughed.
But I'm not bad at long-range
weather forecasting. This morning
the fields were sparkling white.

How stupid is that ?

We who want to be admired
invented gods who wanted to be worshipped !

Pederasts, Monsters and Blind Ignorance.

I was fired abruptly from my budding (and only) career
as a magazine columnist by writing, sometime around 1980
(when monster-finders switched their crusading attention
from 'homosexuals' to 'paedophiles')
that sex between men and boys was not necessarily abusive,
could be a Hellenic act of kindness and tenderness by both parties
- and that I as a fatherless and sexually-curious boy
emotionally-abused and physically beaten at school by men,
would have welcomed an occasional kindly, gentle, hairy,
therapeutic hand on my genitals from around the age of ten.

Sheeple

 are stupid, and talk too much.
Animals are dumb - but clever.
