On becoming tough enough for everything …

In truth, when you toughen up, you need other people less not more.  And this slow leaking away of dependence, whilst terrifying at first, does mean you don’t have to be with anyone.  Life suddenly becomes simpler as hardness defends, encompasses and grows up around you.  In the face of a solemn and doleful universe, one becomes solemn and doleful oneself.

And that’s what’s happening.

The objectively unrelenting [matter of the] universe

What’s unrelentingly awful about

the universe we live

in

is not the shit that hits the fan be-

cause of

evil people and organ-

i-

sation

but, rather, the “gooder” people

around

us and within who “do-

good”

as much damage

out of a complicit lack

of ambition;

out of a casual care-

less idiocy of vision;

out of something which

drives them to res-

ist an ownership

that would save us all from

their sunken fists.
