One of my pet peeves aside from European foreigners who come to NYC only to bash and make fun of the city and American culture, are the assclowns who say love conquers all. Have they read a newspaper or looked outside the window. As first generation person here in these United States, speaking 2 other languages I can tell you ‘love’ is one of the abused words in the English language. Tell a random stranger how much you love them and you could get pepper-sprayed. Love has conquered all for who, how about those with irreparably bad cases of sexual diseases.
Examples of Love Conquering it all
- Food – Love will fill our empty bellies and pay our rent
- Excuse me Mr. Mugger – I love you please don’t mug me and take what little I had to degrade myself to earn at my BS job
- I love Jesus Father Kenny isn’t that enough, do I have to go to the confession box?
- Rebel forces are committing crimes against humanity, lets all embrace then and give them the love they certainly didn’t get as children.
- Let’s hug a tree to prevent an ecological crisis or the continued raping of nature
Real Love – I’ll tell you the 411
Did anyone catch the Mary J Blige reference, if you did we might be of the same ethnicity.
The same mental midgets who love putting love conquers all everywhere before they return to their poor excuses for active lives love to quote Rumi who has said that:
Renounce the love of form. Love of faces and forms is not love..”
When mystics of the past have said that love conquers all they weren’t talking about sappy ridiculous adult drama, pained orifices, and empty relationship to the guy or girl you settled with in high school because you had self esteem issues. They were talking about something beyond even our concept of the beyond. That means that as much as all the cold starry nights in the back of the el camino were rutting your youth away like a scrofulous dog in heat was love, it wasn’t at the same time
Love is impuissant without knowledge of self, knowledge of the totality of the human experience and I can go on. Love it also useless with out the being able to sense the right time when to do certain thing – without a certain amount of intuition. Love without the willingness to work hard to sweat to go beyond one’s comfort zones, to shut the fuck up and perform one’s duties to friends family society nation etc is useless and isn’t love
When you find an asshole telling you love conquers all see if you can conquer the pressing need you have to shut their fat useless mouths with a fist
Wishing you all Love Light Puppy Dog Shits, and Boner Medicine induced trips to the ER
