While working out at the gym today, I ogled a younger guy.
Much younger. Thirty tops. Maybe not even.
I’m gonna back peddle, here. It wasn’t an ogle, exactly. More of a refined leer. And, lest you think otherwise, I wasn’t imagining anything untoward.
I just liked the cut of…
He’s from Turkey. But it does give him some great advantages at the same time. Like not having to dig his way out from under a lot of Western bullshit.
So, he’s able to read Victor Frankl and cut right to the point:
“In the end, we realize that life is not something to be taken lightly, as each of us turns into a tragic hero at that very painful point where life takes us lightly.
“Everyone has tragedies like this in their life. What is personal, has only meaning and value in personal life…
“If we do not understand, our art will continue to be tricky, our thinking to trickery, and our politics to trickery.”
And if you want to make “art” out of that “tragedy,” you have to work that “trickery” into the universality of “life” itself. It isn’t personal.
So are a lot of other people if they don’t get the message. The Turd Reich himself? That may still be another matter.
And the rush to get this matter settled is on with the 2022 election cycle now in full swing, rats like Joe Rogan and twerps like Tucker Carlson working incessantly, spouting lies to the great unthinking in America.
What will happen if the GOP overtakes the Democrats in 2022, securing a majority in the House? Democracy will crumble into the dust. It will be as though those anarchists who attacked the Capitol on January 6th had murdered each and every one of the Capitol police force and then slaughtered every Democratic Congressperson on their predetermined hitlist.
