Dumping Grounds

02 Nov
"Those convinced against their will
are of the same opinion still."
Whoever quipped this was spot-on.
Let's recognize the underlying wisdom
encapsulated in this suggestive tidbit.
Today's culture seems to have
overlooked basic human nature
with its underlying rebelliousness,
greed, licentiousness, &
overall unmanageable core. The pipedream
that some utopian egghead philosophy
can whip us all into uniformity is unfeasible,
but toyed with by many senseless
specimens of our unenlightened species.
So whether so-called moral progressives
or dyed-in-the-wool conservatives,
political panaceas are merely platforms
for toileting.
