>Once we were talking with Guershon Perlshtein he mentioned someone who had established a second family ("casa chica" a la Zvi Rintzler). The comment arrived from the blue, unconnected to the business 0n hand. Steve Sailer wrote a note on the advantages of retiring in a colonial country, like Costa Rica, and quoted a Rudyard Kipling poem about clean girls on the road to Mandalay. The effect is that we are reading each other's minds, that we are aware of the other old white male's recondite fantasies. Extrapolating, the older I am clearest it is that people has been built following one prototype and we all feel the same feelings, we all think the same thoughts, we all dream the same dreams. This is a hard fact, we can safely disregard anything because we know exactly what the other guy is trying to do, because "we" are the other guy. And viceversa, it is to be taken for granted that our motives cannot be hidden and the other guy sees through us as if we had a screen on out head projecting our thoughts.
When young I thought why all these hypocrisy? If you and me are exactly the same, we have nothing to be ashamed of in front of each other. But I have learned that in this world peopled by evildoers and sick minds searching for evil motives in the others, the lack of hypocrisy is self damaging and pointless. Let the others pretend they are not human beings, that they are God's saints marching on, I shall never push them against the wall and demand aknowledgement of reality. I am old and tired for that and I have other things to do in the few years I may have ahead. The drawing shows the pirate Gibbs carrying the Dutch Girl in aboard of his vessel. The other a Pirate settled with his Madagascar wife.
