How does one make a success out of abject failure? Perhaps by redefining success to eliminate the possibility of going wrong yet again. Perhaps Mohammed does indeed need to step around the mountain rather than just simply wait there for the larger of the two exist the field. The worst of weather and moods suggest that a greater level of disappointment is already looming ahead? A regime change that more than likely will not c hang anything but see things get even worse out of the guise of extenuated circumstance. The choice of illusions being left up to those at ground level that may or may not have been bamboozled by the cleverness of the underlying ruse of two bad choices presented at the opposite poles as both ‘the worst possible and the doubly worst possible’ in terms of getting anything beneficially done. “How could one have been taken in so easily? Played for such a ‘rube’ one might ask? Again. The answer being that politics may not be your thing. Not be anybody’s thing. Just as in a like same manner as the common cold once referred to as ‘the grip’. So like the spectacle of the yearly ego boost of the ‘Bulls at Pamplona’ that young minded males at heart of decades too far past to be serious. Seriousness fades quickly after the momentary epiphany has dissipated. Realities fade back into the picture like cold water poured into a hot glass fresh from the dishwasher. The best result one can hope for is tepid at best.
All this sounds like the height of banality. And it is because in the view of the few who have railed on and on for year after tedious year about the artificiality of modern existence the little ‘we’ are all in a lifelong prison. Though this seems overly dramatic one might recall that Hollywood is a reliable mill for obfuscation and diversion. So much so that nagging impulse to retreat to conventionality is the biggest illusion that the movie industry has to offer. This fact alone turns the perception of this sort of interpretation into a conundrum. What do you choose to believe? And then of course do you have the right to put your beliefs above those of a that illusion of the consensus of the group and the way things are and possibly challenge the way things have always been. All of this being what it is. Or rather what one would have in their best sense of their conception of a perfect Utopia. Yet having been so accustomed to not having a workable reality for most of the entirety of their lives the question is what is reasonably attainable and even more important what can one live with?
Because of course all one knows is that this foreign illusion that inescapably defines one. How sad to think that the last real independent thought one might have had came format he confusion of youth at a time when one’s own life was as much a matter of accident as intelligible decisions. Perhaps that is why Millennial’s are so attracted to extreme bouts of ritual drunkenness? Their older siblings riding along the cliff in with shaky wheels close to slipping into an adjacent abyss. The abyss being the expected conventionality that one is so familiar with. The same conventionality that one’s parents and grandparents are attributed to have known all along. But then, could one really be sure? Maybe things in those years before were not different. But then again there is the possibility that all the nagging conversation about the way things once was. But having heard that same tract so many times growing up and ignoring it, can one faithfully recall it in detail? So far away from one’s consciousness that if one were in fact acting it out unawares due to familial connection. This is called ‘the double whammy’. Damned if you do or damned if you don’t! This line of reasoning tiresomely leads back to the same basic conclusion. The fact of the matter being that one worries too much! That one cannot unravel things that one cannot change for the rest of the world. Simply, on the best whim of the current day, can one work in their own best interest in keeping with the morality of self. After all, it is you that creates the ultimate illusion.
