Sorry, Marx

Religion is hardly an opiate anymore....this is not a world of relaxed, foggy-headed blind believers. Oh no, instead religion has become the crystal meth of the masses, making them shifty-eyed, distrustful and manic, grinding their teeth to powder in anticipation of MORE. But not to worry, we still have plenty of other opiates: purchasing power, media, celebrity gossip, anti-depressants, cultural relativism, denial, credit, technology, -philias and -phobias, just to name a few.

And just try to avoid numbing yourself. Then you're an exposed bundle of nerves and frustration and disgust and disbelief, despondent because this is the world in which we choose to live.

Now I have to take my coffee, sit out back and think of everything for which I am grateful.
