A Call to Action from the Void

“Let us not waste our time in idle discourse! Let us do something, while we have the chance! It is not every day that we are needed…. To all mankind they were addressed, those cries for help still ringing in our ears! But at this place, at this moment of time, all mankind is us, whether we like it or not”

Vladimir addresses his words in Samuel Beckett’s tragicomic play, “Waiting for Godot,” to a traumatized, post-war Europe. The zeitgeist of which recognized the futility of peace. Fascists destroy, and we destroy fascists: there is no other tenable response. The powerful existents challenge a constructed moral order to enact their will to power, as moralists and altruists protect the weak through displays of power themselves.

When you think you’ve reached the end of conflict, that primordial beast whips back and latches to its tail. No forward, no back, it spirals. Ouroboros. That’s war hun’.

Am I wrong? Do tell.
