Saturday afternoon Open Thread

Five days away from my desk and all Hell broke loose on that surface. I’ve cleared several hundred emails, paid several dozen bills, and done several loads of laundry (my office and the laundry room are one and the same). I discovered things I want to blog about, but I need to reattach myself to my perpetual motion machine for a few hours first. If I don’t get any writing done today, be assured that I will tomorrow.

And that you do it in the short term.
    After awhile, that kind of activity builds up resources that can then be harnessed, but later. Only later. So even if the entire world betrays you, hates you, and leaves you with unfairness and injustice, at least trust and depend upon your own hard work and people close to you (maybe). Forget everything else. For humanity, everybody that doesn’t have a “face” wasn’t “human” to them. That was a very efficient psychological defense mechanism. As a function of warfare and psychological warfare defenses, it kept people going. It was enough.
