LIVE UNTIL I DIE
I have nothing better to do than live until I die.

SOLITUDE
Solitude is ego death, of sorts, because you can’t hide much from yourself.  Fear of solitude makes people lonely.

HOMO SAPIENS
So much for human beings.  I guess you have to be intelligent to create needless suffering.

SUFFERING
That human intelligence could create such suffering seems so contrary to common sense that I’m astounded people haven’t figured out how stupid that is.

FREEDOM
To chain a man, you first chain his thoughts, but people forget this makes slaves of both.  A free woman who wants to remain free will not seek to bind others to her.

IMAGINATION
Kurt Vonnegut said imagination is learned.  I believe the opposite.  Imagination is unlearned by systematic socialization into unchallenged belief systems.  Socialization constricts imagination and direct appreciation of experience. Experience stimulates imagination.  How can anyone live life without wondering about its meaning?  Isn’t this imagination at work?

SPARE CHANGE BUYS BALLS
Spare change buys balls, and if you have the balls, you choose the ball game.  Freedom is self-governance.  Capitalism is the individual’s freedom to negotiate a fair exchange in which both parties benefit.

BLIND AND DEAF
Just because you are blind and deaf, don’t assume vision and hearing are unproven.

GOVERNMENT FUTURES
We ought to sell government futures on the commodities market.  I wouldn’t invest a zinc penny, but if others believe the government has a future, they can throw in a few trillion electronic dollars to pay for it.

REJECTION
Every time I get rejected, it frees me of obligation, one that I’m not fully aware of feeling until I’m rejected.

YOUTHINASIA
“Youthinasia,” the plastic surgeon’s cure for aging and fat.  Liposuction to fuel cars.  Drive on your own unwanted fat.  “Lighten up, America” campaign.  Reduce dependence on anyone’s oil but your own.
