Of course! No one is above the pile of..., but it doesn't change bullshit into a basket of roses, does it? :P

The only "bullshit" here is your criticism of the thread as a whole.

Now, now... [-X I said that some people made an effort. I don't recall whether I included you in that list... :-k

I don't take know for an answer.

As long as you didn't include yourself, or ol'Bill W, and I'm fine.... anyone else you claim didn't make an effort, then I have an issue.

I believe freedom is a myth or story and has no basis in reality. I build this affirmation on the lines that nothing is free from the bounds and dependencies of this world therefore nothing is free.


That being said, I can honestly assert that I have many philosophical perversion droppings.
“How can a bird that is born for joy
Sit in a cage and sing?”
― William Blake

“Little Fly
Thy summers play,
My thoughtless hand
Has brush'd away.

Am not I
A fly like thee?
Or art not thou
A man like me?

For I dance
And drink & sing:
Till some blind hand
Shall brush my wing.

If thought is life
And strength & breath:
And the want
Of thought is death;

Then am I
A happy fly,
If I live,
Or if I die”
― William Blake, Songs of Innocence and of Experience

“No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings.”
― William Blake
