Accepting Evil

I was introduced to the concept of “evil” at a very young age. It was introduced to me through religious conservatism, as well as through television news. Both were saturated with incessant talk of evil things that people were doing all around the world. When my religion taught me that I was evil, when I […]

The Great Evil…

Instilling religious fear into another human being is the greatest injustice that one can do to another… Conserv. Christianity. Free Will Contradictions. “The Right Thing”. Moral. Slayer. Religious poem. Justice.

A short theory about the correlation between offensive art and evil reality.

Most people are “offended” when something shatters the little bubble that they are living in that they think is perfect, which, because of that, they associate with actual evils such as rape and murder (more murder), which also shatter many peaceful bubbles. But we must recognize the difference between artistic depictions of murder, and a murderer who calls his […]

Guilt as an easy pathway for evils.

Most evils capture unsuspecting victims through the process of guilt. Both the Left and the religious Right rely on this godawful, utmost deplorable, evil, vicious, and destructive ploy, which prays upon the most innocent and those most fervent to do “good.” Moral. Christianity. Liberal. Intent. Things that I have for sale on Kindle. Where you can financially support me […]

“No one is perfect” as an excuse for evil.

I don’t think that the fact that no one is perfect and everyone is sinful is justification for murder, so I don’t understand why it’s justification for the acceptance of other evils, either. Lack of perfection and the impossibility of its existence does not give evil any high ground. That’s what makes our existence, including (and […]

Personal Examination of Experimental Repetition

I once had a blog. I guess it was near 10 year ago, now. Would’ve made me 15, 16 years old. Yikes. Glad it’s not still around (although a part of me wishes I could still see what I wrote, and only me). But I’ve always been a scatterbrained little boy, for a multitude of reasons. […]

Follow the Leader

Oh, Cody. Why do you write anything? Why do you do this to yourself? The brain thinks. It plays your shortcomings on a loop. Your head is a fucking mess. The filing cabinet is the skull: everything is just strewn about in absolute disorganization. Why not just keep it in your head? Why ever withdraw […]

Review of George Orwell’s “1984”

This is one of those books that is hard to do justice with a review. The copy that I read, borrowed from my best friend, has a preface by Walter Cronkite written in 1983, and an afterword by Eric Fromm in 1961. I’ll share a little bit of each of these before I write my […]

Review of Stephen King’s “It”

It’s too damn long. Part of the problem is seeing the movie before reading the book. I knew there was going to be a spider, so I wanted to get to that part. That probably diminished some of my enjoyment of the story. Not entirely, however. I like King’s horror and gruesomeness, but I didn’t […]

Writing blues.

9/21/17. Midnight. The house is quiet, but the mind is dishearteningly loud. This is the perfect time to read. Books are calling your name. You start to read and…it bores you. Your mind drifts to your own work. All of those poorly written stories. This is the perfect time to write. But it is all […]
