I will not serve that in which I no
longer believe, whether it calls
itself my home, my fatherland, or
my church: and I will try to
express myself in some mode of life
or art as freely as I can and as
wholly as I can, using for my
defence the only arms I allow
myself to use -- silence, exile,
Because we’ve been lied to
and lied to, and it hurts to be
lied to. It’s ultimately just
about that complicated: it hurts.
It denies you respect for yourself,
for the liar, for the world.
Especially if the lies are chronic,
systemic, if hard experience seems
to teach that everything
you’re supposed to believe
in’s really a game based on
lies. Young Voters have been taught
well and thoroughly. You may not
personally remember Vietnam or
Watergate, but it’s a good

rather of who manages to get people
to let them do it to them. To
summarize: it is a well-known fact
that those people who must want to
rule people are, ipso facto, those
least suited to do it. To
summarize the summary: anyone who
is capable of getting themselves
made President should on no account
be allowed to do the job.
So no, I’m not too big on
religion...and not very fond of
politics or economics either...And
why should I be? They are the
man-created trinity of terrors that
ravages the earth and deceives
those I care about. What mental
turmoil and anxiety does any human
face that is not related to one of
