The Genius Of The Crowd - Charles Bukowski

The Genius Of The Crowd

there is enough treachery, hatred violence absurdity in the average
human being to supply any given army on any given day

and the best at murder are those who preach against it
and the best at hate are those who preach love
and the best at war finally are those who preach peace

those who preach god, need god
those who preach peace do not have peace
those who preach peace do not have love

beware the preachers
beware the knowers
beware those who are always reading books
beware those who either detest poverty
or are proud of it
beware those quick to praise
for they need praise in return
beware those who are quick to censor
they are afraid of what they do not know
beware those who seek constant crowds for
they are nothing alone
beware the average man the average woman
beware their love, their love is average
seeks average

but there is genius in their hatred
there is enough genius in their hatred to kill you
to kill anybody
not wanting solitude
not understanding solitude
they will attempt to destroy anything
that differs from their own
not being able to create art
they will not understand art
they will consider their failure as creators
only as a failure of the world
not being able to love fully
they will believe your love incomplete
and then they will hate you
and their hatred will be perfect

like a shining diamond
like a knife
like a mountain
like a tiger
like hemlock

their finest art

Back to Sequel Hell Where You Belong

Ok, Will Ferrell as Ron Burgundy, we get the joke, in fact, we got the joke the last time around.  One good thing about this constant TV exposure is that I’ve seen you so much that now I don’t have to pay money to go see your silly crap at the theater.

Kerouac Quote #2

  “What does it mean that I am in this endless universe, thinking that I’m a man sitting under the stars on the terrace of the earth, but actually empty and awake throughout the emptiness and awakedness of everything? It means that I’m empty and awake, that I know I’m empty and awake, and that there’s no difference between me and anything else.”
— Jack Kerouac

Thoughts on Syria

I have to laugh (or maybe more of a guffaw) when America takes on the role of the world’s morality enforcers. With this country’s long history of doing horrible shit to people, [Slavery, native American genocide, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Dresden, Vietnam, Fallujah and drone killings], just to name a few, we can hardly be the arbiters of good and evil on this planet. Any action taken on Syria has little to do with a chemical attack and more to do with power and greed.

The Sage - Greg Lake

The Sage - Greg Lake

I carry the dust of a journey
 That cannot be shaken away
 It lives deep within me
 For I breathe it every day

You and I are yesterdays answers
 The earth of the past come to flesh
 Eroded by times rivers
 To the shapes we now possess.

Come share of my breath and my substance
 And mingle our streams and our times
 In bright infinite moments
 Our reasons are lost in our eyes.

“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s gotta happen inside first.” — Jim Morrison

Kurt Vonnegut

“America is the wealthiest nation on Earth, but its people are mainly poor, and poor Americans are urged to hate themselves.... It is in fact a crime for an American to be poor, even though America is a nation of poor. Every other nation has folk traditions of men who were poor but extremely wise and virtuous, and therefore more estimable than anyone with power and gold. No such tales are told by American poor. They mock themselves and glorify their betters.”― Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five

Bob Dylan - Times They are a-Changin

CISPA passes House vote.

Something to think about. This and the fact that Miranda rights of an American citizen were suspended makes me consider that freedom can be granted or taken away on the whim of someones interpretation of the law. I have absolutely no sympathy for these people who do dispicable acts but consider that you or someone you know could be deemed a threat by a comment made on social media. Held indefinitely and denied the basic rights that an American citizen has come to expect as stated in the Constitution. So when we demand that any citizen is not granted their rights because of their ethnic origin or religious beliefs we fail. We are just fucking ourselves. Good luck America.
