So living in a cognitive dissonant state is normal for them. They want to appear to be generous of spirit but in their hearts they are as brutish and cruel as any of their own imagined demons. It is unfortunate that we, our society in general, continue to home grow these intellectual midgets, Our society is becoming one where the fate of those who are desperate is held in contempt without knowing why. It is sufficient for many to just shoot first and don't even ask questions later. An expectation that certain privileges and rights are theirs and who cares so much about yours. It has been my fate to have been born into an era where logic and common sense are less attractive a process than ignorance and hatred.
Yet here I am and as a witness to it I can say that I am determined to stomp ignorance and hatred out. I don't admire cowardice nor fear as paradigms worthy of my time. They are weak and less than human actions as a foundation. I was born onto this planet with nothing beyond my skin and when I die I will take nothing, not even my skin with me. So all that is in between is the accumulation of who I am, not the comfort and finery I surround myself with, which in my case is stretching things a bit. I had a friend who has since passed who used to say that he could be walking down the street with nothing but his shirt on his back and he would be just fine. To him, everything tangible was just pig iron. In other words, irrelevant. So it is with me and that is what I fight to express.
