march 13


Consider the following two quotes:
A squirrel dying in front of your house may be more relevant to your interests right now than people dying in Africa.
-Mark Zuckerberg

All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.
-George Orwell
How much does John's death matter? How much does Lenina's death matter?  How much does the Savage's death matter?  How much does a death in the Third World matter?  How much does the death of a friend/loved one/classmate matter?  Objectively, do any of them really matter more than any of the others?
If the above is too heavy for a Friday, consider this quote:

Just cause you got the monkey off your back doesn't mean the circus has left town.
-George Carlin
What does he mean?  Why is this message so much more effective as a metaphor than if he just would've come out and given us some personal improvement counsel?

1. Journal
2. Textual support & group/independent work
3. Masterpiece Consultations

Think. Read. Get some sun.
