The Final Curtain

Thursday, September 02, 2010


"We must understand all of politics - no matter
in what nation it is practiced - as a system that
wars against the very nature of life. Politics
cannot be eliminated by force - for to do so
would only imply an even mightier amassing of
power than what is in place. Neither can it be
reformed, the effort to do so being as absurd as
trying to practice a peaceful form of warfare, or
a humane system of tyranny. It can only be
transcended, a process that can only begin by
each of us ending the divisions and fears that
our political masters have carefully conditioned
us to accept. When we discover peace and order
within ourselves, we shall then withdraw our
energies from the sanctified hostilities and
confusion that are destroying life."  --Butler
