razor sharp

The day he turns 87 is as good as any other to share some recent words of a sharp mind. I think his views are sometimes too certain about shit being intentional  and planned, or at least predictable. The world’s too messy, too big, too intricate an orchestra for any planner, be it crook or saint, to conduct. Because we all tend toward conspiracy thinking, our mental machinery is hardwired to do so,  those of us, like him, who actively investigate the dark sides of power, cannot but go overboard sometimes. So I don’t blame him. And that tendency to grant power too much, well, power, doesn’t diminish the awe I feel when listening to this granddaddy of the critical intellectual class.

Still figuring out the story line that would satisfy myself here. Listening to what my family and friends evoke, what the words I absorb, the images that move me, the movements that still me, point to.
