Profitable and fresh
Loveless twisted flesh
Willful ignorance of truth
The hateful minds of youth
The earth laid to waste
No account for taste
History is a lie
Conformity or die
Dreams you can't afford
Slavery without reward
Desire out of place
Spit all over your face
Love me some sushi. Also love...
No account for taste
History is a lie...
It's over. What's over? Life? Or is it virtue, enlightenment, progressiveness, perseverance, freedom, etc.? Not that it matters. It's a cool lyric. Just wondering what you were thinking there. : )
I hate being lied to by pompous patronizing civil servants so blinded by self-edification that mistaking contempt for ignorance is assumed virtuous. How do fools so convinced of their intellectual superiority justify their authority over subjugated society when discerning the truth is so obviously beyond their arrogance? I am sick of being so distracted by manufactured opinion that I am left feeling alone in my perception of evidence. I can no longer sacrifice my integrity for the sake of discretion... I am angry.
It's weird that in a country where freedom is constitutionally ordained that its the freedom to group think and the freedom to parrot and the freedom to forgo discernment that is threatening to tear it apart. You should be angry. Good on you. Heck, I'm angry (and I'm not even American)!
"Acta deos numquam mortalia fallunt..."
I remember having to read Ovid's "Tristia" as a kid. I'm not sure how well his lyrics would go down here. Just look at that word order. It would be so much easier to understand if it was "Si tamen acta mortalia deos numquam fallunt," but oh no, Ovid has to go and mix it up. Can't be because he's looking for a rhyme, since the Romans didn't have rhyme. Seems to scan just as well either way. I think he just enjoyed the thought of generations of schoolkids scratching their heads in bewilderment, a crime for which he thoroughly deserved his exile.
I always remember one line, "Sive homines, vix sunt homines hoc nomine digni," which worked well as a dismissive insult - When I look at the men, these men are hardly worthy of the name. This is the kind of Latin phrase that really comes in handy LOL.
I may or may not be an enigma
Very true. I always treat with caution people who think themselves wise. More often than not, they are deluded. Wisdom goes with humility, never with arrogance. People who think themselves wise are probably not. I think this might be why politicians do not tend to be wise -- they're just good salespeople.
