What the hell have I woken up to?

I feel like Charlton Heston as astronaut George Taylor in Planet of the Apes when he realizes and wakes up to the truth.

You finally really did it. You maniacs! You blew it up!”

I love gorillas. Meeting Koko was a huge list item that I’m sad to have missed.

It’s the bad gorillas that have taken over finally with the wise men/orangutans just sitting there, never rocking the boat, just holding on to their comfortable positions. See no evilhear no evilspeak no evil.

How did the few gorillas take so much from the will and benefit from the much more numerous chimps/(chumps)?

So much of our history has been molded by both acts and good and bad. Why hasn’t the majority not been a force of good or not molding history by good acts?

Watch The Three-Penny Opera.

This was written in the time of the rise of Hitler and the Nazis. What is being written now? Artists should be creating as Brecht has, something that can survive as long as this.

All you word people, all you wonderous beauties, say things, make things that strum hearts, moisten eyes, and inspire thought and feeling.

Do it before your works are burned or banned. It’s happened before, even after the 30’s and 40’s. It can happen again.

Let’s wake to something better.
