the worship of jackals by jackasses. modern american politics.
all of it rhetoric, all of “historic”, all of it pedantic, phrentic, sophomoric. ic ic ic.
we pretend to be concerned about fair humanity, good liberals. we pretend to be concerned about good responsibility, fair conservatives. mawkish justications and good old esoterrorism takes over: claimed noblesse oblige leads our way, we of the low lands. we the water carriers. herders. brute bourgeoise. the big and powerful tamed by the lowest animal, slithering beneath our feet, groveling with a master’s sting. we hold the power but are too stupid to realize we are also the lowest animal: the human. mark the twain: each of us is measured in the same idyllic sin: self. each carries the venomous surge of pride. and none of us really cares for anyone but ourselves.
ourselves attaches and mingles with those we love, too. they of course an extension of the self. but we are motivated soley by that want, the most regal of us, the most swarthy of us, and each and every sort in the middle.
creatures, all the same.
