The following correspondence originally took place upon the Facebook wall of an acquaintance, after she posted artwork from here…
“Ouch!… You’re standing on my neck!” “Well, that’s one point of view… But, one could also say that you’re trying to trip me with your neck…” “You see, in teh postmodern condition, we create our own reality based upon our internalized preconceptions. Since there is no longer one objective truth, we are free to create our own truth… So, you see, there is no right and wrong – just an infinite number of equally valid ‘stories’.” “But you’re still standing on my neck!” “You never went to college, did you?”
Danielle J.: Or his neck is pushing against his shoe lmfao
Jennifer H.: Some people would say that!
Jennifer H.: People who really, really want to step on your neck will try to convince everyone that your neck is pushing against their shoe.
Danielle J.: Lmao I’ve taken many philosophy classes
Danielle J.: Crazy
Danielle J.: haha
Rayn: Yes, indeed! Also, reading this comic has triggered the Daria theme song to play in my head on repeat!
As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Truth Be Known,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…
“It is not the job of thinking people to be on the side of the executioners.” – Albert Camus
My Commentary: Never forget the Kent State massacre! During this year’s anniversary of the American government’s murderous crimes against innocent student anti-war protesters, which is today, take a moment to reflect on this egregious violation of human rights committed by a system that has historically purported to legally protect them. We must learn to reject ALL forms of democide – no matter who the perpetrator is – and to discard the blinder-based faith required to adhere to the religion of Statism!
