Jesup 1997, Nicknames

At Jesup FSL, newly arrived, few of the newcomers knowing each other yet, I was talking to a fellow, CD May (a camp ground owner, keeps horses for his lovely wife), and I found an opportunity, not hard for pk to do, to disapprove of kleptocracy’s pretensions. I commented how Plato said that even Socrates had ceded rights to his society that I find preposterous. Socrates claimed that his society, having bred and educated him, therefore had the right to take his life.

“Fuck society,” I said.
“Quite so, Socrates,” said CD May.

About pk

Seems to me that some modicum of honesty is requisite to intelligence. If we look in the mirror and see not kleptocrats but Christians, we’re still in the same old trouble.
