[When life becomes a burden – as if it normally is not – we need to step aside and let things take their course.  We don’t often like the result, just ask the folks in Oklahoma. Yet, we still need to keep questioning the direction we have embarked upon.  No one is better suited to this endeavor than our own Heretik!! – kC]

by the Heretik – Fred

When a man lies, he murders some part of the world. These are the pale deaths which men miscall their lives. [Cliff Burton- member of the band Metallica]

Any relationship between sentient beings relies upon a common understanding  It can rest upon verbal signals, body language, grunts, snarls, most anything, or in the case of human beings, a highly developed complex culture. Whenever this culture breaks down, when understanding is lost, we wind up where we are today in the USA, a highly fragmented society, with competing groups fighting over the last scraps of the resource pie.
