Comment: We have tried to make them laugh.

(See in situ)

We have tried to make them laugh.

Their obvious errors only stimulate them to greater error and noisier self approval. They are bores.
They hate beauty. They hate sex. They hate life.
We have warned them from time to time to their inequities and blindness.
We have addressed every available appeal to their withered sense of righteousness.
We have tried to make them laugh.
We have prophesied in detail the terror they are perpetuating. But they have been deaf to the weeping of the poor, the anguish of the colored, the rocking mockery of the young, the warnings of their poets. Worshipping only force and money, they listen only to force and money. But we shall no longer talk in these grim tongues.

~Timothy Leary

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”
