Old Time Religion
“Kierkegaard showed that taking religion
seriously is compatible with being against
religion in almost all its actual forms..."
DESIRE- “of the stars, sidereal,
No satisfaction, never. Not an anomaly
or exception, mistake, flaw, fault in the
system. Essential: no satisfaction for
crying out loud. How could it be otherwise?
Restless legs. Don’t fence me in. Greener
grass Somewhere else—over the rainbow.
Something Else. Other. Always. Never
satisfaction. Jog Jog to
Jog Jog to Boston
and back again. Desire.
It’s the Denver
denial and cover-up that’s toxic. Desire.
Beyond Species Good & Evil
Evil: “up from below. Upo”
An intellectual truth. A felt truth.
There’s a difference. Imagine
appreciating the evil it takes to get
GOOD. I know, right! The denial
of the evil it takes to get Good makes
common sense and is part of the evil
it takes to make GOOD. This doesn’t
diminish the evil it takes—or denies it,
but exposes the limits of language
and representation and the difference
between knowing something is true
and feeling its truth. No escape. Denial
sure—but escape: not possible. It can’t
be said. Much less defended.
