let your life
become
all lights
and plastic,
fast food
and tv,
car crashes
weather
and celebrity.

    Ok. You’ve never steered me wrong yet. When I complete my training period will I be able to use those initials after my name like this – Bice Sagan, CZTI – cause that would be pretty cool.

    Yes it does have a nice ring to it.

    The free spirit ever flexing the chained wings, rattling the cage of urban banality till the leg ring chafes…and bleeds. Non-resistance creates the CZTI frankenstein, ever gullible by polls and infomercials. I think the human mind (at least of some) is too strong to be numbed by the false security of modern living. Still you feel something has to be done, I’m right, am I?

    “the false security of modern living” – ain’t that the truth…

    The consumer, ultimately, has all the power. But it is unrealized thanks to the great corporate skinner box also known as public education.

    It’s very odd how the ‘comforts of modern living’ simply repress our grief at losing, every second, a part of this world. Well, not odd per se; but a proof over the extreme power of human denial.

    interesting, you see this mindless consumerism as denial? – I like that angle…

    thank you for visiting!
