Loyalty

 

To your:

 

  • Nation
  • State
  • Suburb
  • Street
  • Family
  • Church
  • Sport’s team
  • School-day peers

 

None of this means anything, because it neither is organic nor “home-grown” and we have simply deceived ourselves. Remember those “Aussie grown” labels? Contrast the position (right in front of your face) with those of “Made in China” labels (stowed away on the back/bottom). Almost like they intended for the “Aussie” labels to be more noticeable. Curious.

 

You were unwittingly born into your:

 

  • Nation
  • State
  • Suburb
  • Street
  • Family
  • Church
  • Sport’s team
  • School-day peers

 

No decision was involved. You were suddenly birthed into consciousness given a strictly random combination of genetic material that suffered the rainbows as well as the throes, of life, just to become you. It was only ever you and it only ever will be you. You are unique. Your existence bears no significance amid vast cosmic multitudes and it is only delusion and vanity that make you think so.

 

All the philosophy and theology for what… It’s simple, really. The answer is you are loyal to yourself.

By that I mean you are loyal to your ego.

 

You unconsciously pave your way through the masses each day - sharp scratching and blunt grating proving apt demonstration to the functionality of your brutish device of hatred, utilised masterfully, blocking out all stimuli but the sordid constructions of one’s own mind.

You plow forth in pitiful misdirection, for it never mattered which way you traveled, should only you make haste in the leisurely swinging of your dick in front of all who inspire hate in your vest, so long as they do not outrank you in the social hierarchy, in which case you’d prefer to suck on theirs if only they’d pet your head and give you a moment’s recognition for being a good boy.
