What’s next…?

The question is not which system of belief you will adopt. Religious or not, scientism or not, you will decide. You can’t not decide. Even the belief in nothing is a belief – even atheism is an ‘ism’. No, the question is what you’ll do with that belief once you’ve adopted it. Will you wallow in a hedonistic stupor, ultimately unconcerned with anything but your own navel? Will you ignore the oppression of the money and power-mad; the tyranny of the – finally – only mad? Will you continue to unquestioningly accept whatever those in power tell you, through whatever medium they choose to deliver it? Or will you at last begin to use your God-given/evolutionarily-evolved/unicorn-on-fairy-dust brain for something other than to keep your ears from slamming together? EJ Liederstein
