Just posting this because of a strange coincidence I had while reading this passage:

GEN 4:9 And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?

GEN 4:10 And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground.

GEN 4:11 And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand;

GEN 4:12 When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.

GEN 4:13 And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater than I

I can't believe I just admitted to reading the bible, I need to do some drugs and try to ground myself.

“Armaments, universal debt, and planned obsolescence—those are the three pillars of Western prosperity. If war, waste, and moneylenders were abolished, you'd collapse. And while you people are overconsuming the rest of the world sinks more and more deeply into chronic disaster.”
? Aldous Huxley, Island

"But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.”
? Aldous Huxley, Brave New World
“When a population becomes distracted by trivia, when cultural life is redefined as a perpetual round of entertainments, when serious public conversation becomes a form of baby-talk, when, in short, a people become an audience and their public business a vaudeville act, then a nation finds itself at risk; a culture-death is a clear possibility.” — Professor Neil Postman, Amusing Ourselves to Death: Discourse in the Age of Show Business

"Brave New World Quotes



“All right then," said the savage defiantly, I'm claiming the right to be unhappy."
"Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have syphilis and cancer; the right to have too little to eat, the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind."
There was a long silence.
"I claim them all," said the Savage at last.”
? Aldous Huxley, Brave New World

"Mother Earth is pregnant for the third time
For y'all have knocked her up
I have tasted the maggots in the mind of the universe
I was not offended
For I knew I had to rise above it all
Or drown in my own shit"

George Clinton

Sadly, I have found the above song to be the rule. Judging from the people I know, being a sociopath seems to be essential for modern survival. How could I have been so stupid!?
