liberty, brotherhood, equality (notes on bastille day)

we still can’t seem to get it right.

959that whole “all men are created equal” thing seems more like a fluke of history, an aberration, a hiccup, a laughable diversion. what could those “fathers of our country” been thinking? it’s like they were fucking us and in a moment of passion said “i love you,” when in fact they felt nothing but disdain for us–we were just a receptacle.

960there is no equality. there is no brotherhood. and there is certainly no liberty for all. even the french would agree.
