2006.09.01 Two Views of Reality
Morgan says the government is in the hands of outlaws
and we know who they are.
Kyle says the government is in the hands of outlaws
and we don't know who they are.
Morgan says, "Come out of the White House with your hands up."
Kyle says, "The reality is far more complex
within the gargantuan, byzantine government
and global military-industrial-intelligence complex
and more complex still given the huge power of drug, banking, illicit weapons and other criminal cartels
and the fact that US officials may have acted the part
of guilty parties in some cases to cover-up their own
incompetence or criminal negligence even as they were
aware the official storydidn't hold any water."
Ken says, "The answer is both/and.
The Bush administration did do 9/11, but that it is also true
that there are many other people involved."
I agree with Morgan
partly because I am an optimist
and say, "Impeach Bush, because we can
and can't get to Byzantium
before the rough beast's hour has come."
Nathanael says it must be done forthwith.
Gerard says it's an insult to his intelligence.
Dick says it was Zionist billioniares.
Rosalee says, "Just because it's nonsense
doesn't mean it isn't true."
In the midst of such determination
clarity of mind, and solidarity
what is there to do but wait and die
and hope both beauty and the beast
will pass us by.

For "Byzantium" and the "rough beast" see Yeats' "Sailing to Byzantium" and "The Second Coming."
