To the Point

There comes a time in every epoch when pragmatism simply evolves into extreme acquiescence and surrender to the forces of apathy and do-nothingness, a guarantor of the status quo in all of its easy, democratic criminality--its fortress of greed. You could line up all the pols in the U.S. in a straight row and examine them head to toe and not find a single man or woman capable of admitting, never mind ending, the corruption of their vocation--Buddy Dooley

Deemer Poem

An intense, new poem on love and hate by Charles Deemer at his new blog.

He explores the incongruity of men killing their women, circumstances wrought from social and self-inflicted values that too often portray acquiescence and compromise as forms of weakness.

I would add, uninvited, that a similar intransigence by extension motivates the warrior class...inviting mayhem.
