In our country, it seems that most prefer to talk of and about dead people
the things that they really want to kill,
as opposed to participating in a truly genuine and peaceful conversation,
in the actual present,
with a living entity capable of speaking for and about themselves.
One might associate such speaking for the dead
as a form of living in the past,
and speaking of killing whoever in the future,
as a form of living in the future.
Appreciative remembrance and the celebration of a passed life,
has always seemed more devout and profound to me,
when the living minimize their dilution of the essence passed.
Vitriolic rhetoric and war mongering about killing in the future,
is always proclaimed most vehemently by those most terrified of living in the present
having to acknowledge that their “enemy” might be more justified in their opinions
than they happen to be themselves.
Killing the future and stealing the past,
certainly makes it easier for people
to avoid the truthful reality of the present.
