the government

The common man says "somebody should do something about ____": who? We anthropomorphize entities with our speech, but such talk does not animate them and imbue them with reason. The government is a mere collection of individuals. It has no will, it has no conscience, it has no imagination. Any appearance of such is mere epiphenomenon and should not be mistaken for authentic. The only "somebody" available is you and me. Sacrifices made to gods in White Houses and Olympians on The Hill are pure idolatry. Behind these doors are only men with presumptions of godliness. Forswear worship of all false idols!
