It can be comforting to understand that the stupidity of the upper echelon is much worse than anybody before us ever imagined.

That every brand new thought that you ever happened upon, was pushed back under the swamp of people like that, who stopped your parents thinking it through and daring to take it further.

And that you are not them anymore.

I can't think of any reason why I should return to the dark recesses of such people, other than to remember the way it was. And think upon the oceans of new thoughts yet to be espied, knowing that given eternity, the thought of the god that put them there in the first place only left them just below the surface of a deep blue sea.
