Voting is a mechanism invented so people can distance themselves from responsibility. Voters never really DO anything they just vote for people who do things. Those people, in turn, say that they do everything FOR the voters. In the end when shit goes down, each sides points to each other until the next election when everything is “changed” by electing a “different type” of president. Another example of great and wonderful American Democracy.

I just recently fell in love with jazz. No other music besides classical has ever had such a tangible effect on the human soul. If Nietzsche had listened to Jazz (instead of Wagner) we would be in a new Renaissance right now.
Why do we waste our time talking about a ‘perfect world’ when such a thing cannot be imagined?
I have grown so tired of theories that attempt to remove complexity, remove contradiction, and by doing so, remove humanity.
There is no better personification of beauty than Helen of Troy. As symbol and as a person she is as close as I can get to an apt metaphor on this thing, this overpowering, frightening combination of wonder and awe that can cause a man to launch 1,000 ships.
I will grant you that any complexity can be arrived at through random process IF you grant me that all processes appear random until fully understood. Likewise, all complexity appears random in origin if its complexity is beyond our understanding, since the term ‘random’ most nearly equates to faithfully chaotic.
I will agree that order is subjective IF you agree that chaos in any form implies an order. Furthermore, if you want to say order is illusory than so much be function, or purpose, or anything really. Happiness, sorrow, death, and life have no order and hence no hope of construction, reconstruction, or understanding.
