Legionario

When the readership ends, a strange journey filled with stale and dank space of knowledge, to find amidst the recovery of trash and record of things whose only purpose is a stasis from decay. To exist, as a reminder that many, many people came before us and lived and thought this just like us. It sounds naive, but while the world of archaeological analysis collects and categorises like wall-e, some hint is always missing. And I think it has existed outside of our interest. It’s a personal catharsis, which in passing may produce items of writing which are collected and eventually carry out an autopsy on the carcasses. And so, when I leave the desk for long enough, the duty evaporates. Always with great difficulty, to reach a point when you can feel like you are connected to othe human beings I your lifetime. It’s natural and yet feels so unreal. And it’s really that e world needs to get shit done. There is always stuff to do and things to be done. And you may be the greatest and most dedicated activist, but even MLK took days to be with his family, although I can’t pretend to know his state of mind in any way. But let’s say, tomorrow there will still be everything to do. History has shown me that our time, although not predicated on it being leisurely created  people whose life could have just been on of bliss and pleasure. Organising a party does require some effort I suppose.

And yet my indenture to my existence feels still granted, because it is. A difficult thing to enjoy youth this way. But youth was and is so for many who feel no issue in spending the money of a a family or state to which they feel no obligation nor even gratitude to the their premium existence. How easy it has been. Fortunate is the one who wishes a prison for which to escape from, fortunate is the one who has escaped from their prison. I don’t understand it, but for many life is terminus ante quem. And so, Indiana, perhaps you, your fathers child lived a prosperous childhood. And your reckless and daredevil life is a way for you to find excitement and challenges in higher stakes, because well your status and way of life is guaranteed…so vendettas, wars, and recklessness are the only way to challenge your existence. Memento mori for there is struggle for you. There is no payday loan, wage slavery and crushing debt. Your indenture is own solely attached to the fact that you live, whereas for many the reality is that a capitalist version of feudarchy has placed them in servitude with some civic privileges to enjoy. Really, slaves where not only slaves every moment of their life. Only occasionally. It does not make it ok. But, if we agree to view things as they are, perhaps it will be easier to understand your current situation. But what gain does a slave have to now knowing they are now slaves? Educated and skilled ones are worth more, enjoy more privileges, and in this way we are not so different from ancient Athenians. Except now are tablets are no longer made of clay, and our rhetoric takes place on a global networked agora known as the agora.
