"Life is tragic simply because the earth turns and the sun inexorably rises and sets, and one day, for each of us, the sun will go down for the last, last time. Perhaps the whole root of our trouble, the human trouble, is that we will sacrifice all the beauty of our lives, will imprison ourselves in totems, taboos, crosses, blood sacrifices, steeples, mosques, races, armies, flags, nations, in order to deny the fact of death, which is the only fact we have."
James Baldwin, The Fire Next Time
I've been living in the South for a year now, and in fact, I just came back from the Confederate capital, but I have to say ... Around here, I haven't seen anything like the housing compounds I used to see in PA, next to the interstate, where Confederate battle flags were flying next to neo-Nazi flags and other fascist paraphernalia. That was definitely something.
And in case you dont know, while its politics were deeply divided during the Civil War, PA stayed in the Union at that time. So they have no Confederate history to celebrate. Its just evil.
