|Kris:||There's something ridiculously naive about this author. Uncle Sam is as real as Santa Claus.|
|Tim:||Precisely. In one sense, myths are larger than life. The icons people believe in have more power than flesh and blood. Reality is seldom as powerful as myth.|
|Sam:||Shrewd leaders feed the myths to the masses in order to realize their own agendas. Myths give people a reason for living. Without myth, there's a curious hollowness to existence.|
|Terri:||In that sense myths are pre-eminent propaganda tools.|
Well Sam –
& hoping you're alive.
Please tell them
democracy has passed away –
One word of caution:
Don't feed people so much bullshit –
Small amounts argh tolerable
But overloads make 'em vomit.
