How do we continue to believe in the intrinsic good of human beings, despite corporately-fueled evidence to the contrary?
I just re-read the first line 10 times. Because I want to believe in the intrinsic good of human beings. I draw the line.
I want to believe that we are, in fact, at our best when things are at their worst.
I want to believe that we're at the apex of the nutty and hysterically blithering swing of the pendulum, and that I can actually feel the tug of the slow fall back toward center.
I'd like to live long enough to see the full apex at the other side of the swing - the one where your credibility as a Congressperson is upped by your ability to design this
where Monsanto and their horror-show contemporaries are reduced from this
and where this
I draw the line at this, however:
Because I also want to believe that the earth is flat and rides on the backs of four elephants, atop a giant sky turtle who swims, endlessly, through the vast expanse of space.
