Notes by TK

Kyroot to :04. Growth requires direction; direction requires stability; stability requires power; power requires order. Why is it an impossible option for a newly victorious all-powerful dictator to declare a general relaxation of rules, a holiday, encourage disorder? Why is it that the more power is possessed by an individual the more order he imposes, rather than the reverse (which seems a reasonable enough possibility for an all-powerful leader).

Too much order can choke off growth; the tyrant unconsciously knows that relaxation of order-restraint will allow faster growth in the people and they will outstrip his control more quickly. Growth outgrows everything; where there is life there is growth, ineluctable, incorrigible growth. The Real Revolutionist must continually outgrow what he knows; ordinary intelligence must not be able to outgrow what it knows.


…and Kyroot said:
The Philistines,
Can’t be overcome,
So long as,
You’re one of them.
…and Kyroot said:
That’s why,
It’s good to know,
That in some jurisdictions,
The murder of the king,
By his brother,
Is no crime. (Least wise,
Not a felony.)
…and Kyroot said:
In response to,
Certain curiosity,
And inquiries,
One Revolutionist told the troops,
“If I told you,
Everything I know,
Then you wouldn’t know anything.”
…and Kyroot said:
How come,
There’re only,
Seventeen “Great Ideas”? (and,
Who proved this?)
…and Kyroot said:
Is a unicorn.
…and Kyroot said:
For those of you who,
Seemed less than obscenely overjoyed,
By my recent notation that,
“Being alive,
Is just a hobby.”,
Let me offer an alleviating variation,
To wit – (even, Three wit);
“Being alive is a hobby for someone.”
…and Kyroot said:
Just think, What real, New,
Might do,
In the wrong hands (that is,
If you’re able.)
…and Kyroot said:
“Tis impossible to,
Fake anything Unless men,
Thought it was real, To begin with.
…and Kyroot said:
Justice is equilibrium, (Whether fully seen or not).
…and Kyroot said:
This one guy declared,
“Being in love is like carrying a bucket of water.”, and this so incensed the crowd that some supporters of romance
began attacking the rain makers (it required the full force
of the galvanizers to break up the unseemly melee.)
…and Kyroot said:
Words don’t, Make mistakes – Speakers do.
…and Kyroot said:
A distant cousin,
In a distant world,
Writes to tell me,
About the latest hit song over there;
A little ditty entitled,
“The Consistent Die Young”.
..and Kyroot said:
Sham emotions,
Burn just as bright.
..and Kyroot said:
At a general,
Secondary level,
You could say that,
Everybody’s unspecified hobby,
Is in believing they are,
The source of,
Their signal.

…and Kyroot said:
If there is,
A “last laugh”,
It’ll be Life’s – count on it
…and Kyroot said:
Someone said,
That it’s hard,
To be governed,
In a foreign language.
..and Kyroot said:
Nothing can be fed forever unless it’s growing.
…and Kyroot said:
Insofar as,
City affairs,
And Secondary stuff;
Leave most of it to,
Everyone else – there’re enough everyones to take care of it.
…and Kyroot said:
One guy’s outlook,
He verbally couched;
“The areas of greatest importance,
For a civilized man are;
Political freedoms,
Social justice,
And dizziness.”
…and Kyroot said:
Once X is called Y,
So it becomes,
In the Secondary World, And few can recall,
When it was otherwise. …(Which of course,
From one view – It never was.)
…and Kyroot said:
As some Revolutionists claim,
Simply saying,
“I’m only human.”
Is no excuse,
Might it perhaps then,
Be an alibi?
…and Kyroot said:
The blind re-slaying of the slain, is Not a Revolutionist game.
..and Kyroot said:
The two main problems, Facing man today are, This one,
That one.
…and Kyroot said:
Silence becomes the cost of doing business.
