Prime Time

College Throwball, Arizona @ Stanford or Missouri @ Texas Tech.  Some premiers.

Now don’t mistake me. I’m not advising cruelty or brutality with no purpose. My point is that cruelty with purpose is not cruelty – it’s efficiency. Then a man will never disobey once he’s watched his mate’s backbone laid bare. He’ll see the flesh jump, hear the whistle of the whip for the rest of his life.

I’ve lived my life as a newspaper reporter. I uncover the truth and write my articles. But then I learned, all too well, that a mere reporter like myself can’t ever get to the truth in this city… it’s nearly impossible. And it’s unsure! No one here is even interested in learning the truth – a truth that must be known. But I want to know! I want to learn what must be known!

Even without the events of 40 years ago, I think man would still be a creature that fears the dark. He doesn’t face that fear, he averts his eyes from it and acts as if he doesn’t have any memories of his past. But, 40 years is both a short time and yet, a long time. Man’s fear has withered. And even time itself tries to wither the desire to know the truth. Is it a crime to try and learn the truth? Is it a sin to search for those things which you fear? My purpose in this world is knowledge, and the dissemination of it. And it is I who is to restore the fruits of my labor to the entire world. Fear… It is something vital to us puny creatures. The instant man stop fearing is the instant the species reaches a dead end, only to sink to pitable lows, only to sit and wait apathetically for extinction. Humans who lose the ability to think become creatures whose existance has no value. Wake up! Don’t be afraid of knowledge! Think, you humans who are split into two worlds, unless you want the gulf between humans to expand into oblivian, you must think!

You know, you get bonus points for identifying the quotes.

    The garage music, I came to me the second I got in the car;

    And the king I couldn’t remember was Lou Diamond Phillips.  

    I’ve lost it but it keeps coming back, age induced ‘eprit d’escalier.’
