The Burden

What is it that lies between a person and happiness?  What is that vast, yet unseen and mysterious, force that hangs over life like a grey and forbidding storm cloud?

The joie de vie of youth does not maintain; one moment there is a carefree youth, the next a person bent and sullen by a sudden burden too large to easily bear.

The hopes and dreams and enthusiasms of the young become warped and twisted.  Hopes become fears, dreams become resentments and enthusiasm is dampened down by the cold sponge of duty.

And for whom is this duty?  Why to The State of course.  You must work for it, pray for it, sing an anthem to it, speak glowingly of it, wave a flag for it and then, when necessary, either die for it or give up your child to die for it.

What lies between a person and happiness is madness.  That madness is called The State.

    One function of ‘accomplished’ Man, is to rid ourselves of the State mentality which is an abuse of intelligence in seeking the Recursive Policy of Power; indeed, it is the manifestation of Power itself that is to say, but not creative power.
    It is good to find new friends.
