You go around and around for years trying to "see" what you "feel." Turbulent Velvet has finally shown me what I felt but could not see or articulate. Liberals in politics today or academe or the mainstream church or the media are a managerial elite or nomenklatura whose jobs are threatened. So they suck up to the boss. It is about that simple. That is the "habitus," the loyal servant currying favor with Candidia Cruikshanks, President and CEO of Wealth Bondage. I do live that way in Wealth Bondage on Company Time. I know the rules and the decorum, that of Dick Minim. Thank God, I have The Dumpster out back, and friends like T.V. and the rest of the Dumpster Crew. We are clearly as doomed as Socrates, Diogenes (who did get lucky) or Christ. Under Wealth Bondage, or any Empire, the career choices do not comport well with ethics. You cultivate the Kingdom within, or your own Garden, or you live naked in Barrel, or walk around with a lamp seeking an honest man, or match wits in the Temple or Think Tanks with the learned, or go around with Whip to the moneychangers, but you do not expect preferment from either the Rulers or the Pharisees. Even the smart mobs prefer Simon Magus and Barabas. You keep a low profile and pray, "Father, may this cup pass from me," knowing that Judas is a loyal citizen, and even Peter will deny the cause as the cock crows. No, ethics are not a good move. Pass the Thunderbird and the loaf of stale bread. "This is my.... " Well forget it. The blood was shed 2,000 years ago. We too will be saved come the Rapture, God willing and the creek don't rise. They say martyrs are out of fashion. I hope so.
