Concern in an E-flat Brick

Postby Ierrellus » Sun May 03, 2015 2:49 pm

Trouble got double;
So I got sore;
Couldn't take it anymore.
I threw a brick though the window
Of a jewelry store.
Arrested, I confessed it;
They took me away.
Somebody has to pay.
We all have to pay
Trouble won't go away.

Usually, those who riot lay waste to their own neighborhoods. What is the reason for such senseless violence? Is it that hope is gone? What does the attacked store represent? The trouble doesn't go away.

Will to power is not teleological but simply expression of being. The neighborhood is convenient, familiar. The compulsive actions focus there with least resistance.

To "not shit where you live" requires absence of despair.

Dying communities create living despair. Gangs in out town spring from dying communities ,places populated now by pimps, prostitutes, panhandlers--
Everybody wants a piece of the pie. Not getting it is a call to arms. It is reaction to what society imposes on self-image.
