Wow, I haven't posted to alt.slack in, what, 10 days ... this makes maybe
the seventh post I've made in all of November ... and youse guys still
argue about me. Guess I'm not the most stubborn arguer on all of
alt.slack, eh, Tarla?
I'm still amazed that you're all so mad at me for simply stating a very
simple truth -- that confessing to crimes generally attracts cops like
flies on shit -- when any one of you could have pointed this out to Tarla
long ago and saved her ass. I know I tried (and failed) to persuade back
in 95, but maybe I have this whole "responsibility to friends" thing
wrong. Maybe I have this whole "responsibility to society" thing wrong
too, where you try to stand up to at least one thing you don't like about
the Con. Maybe the most important thing really is to be mildly funny in
the face of life-destroying evils. Really, the Con *will* go away if you
just ignore the hard choices it forces you to make. And shame on me for
acting like the Con is as real as tobacco or SWAT teams or hunger in the
world's richest country.
Face facts. If you're a SubGenius, then by definition you oppose the
Con. So either oppose it or shut the hell up. Dobbs knows, if *I* can
find real-life ways to saw into the Con, you can too, since you're all so
much smarter and hepper and with-it-er and Christian-hating-er than I.
Unless, of course, it's all posturing.
If it walks like a Dupe and acts like a Dupe ...
