A tanka written by Lee Sonogan

ArtStation - Technicolour, Justine Evangelista

“If we suffer from an unbearable mean world syndrome and fear we will get a comeuppance anytime, let us endeavor to defeat the inner rejections of buoyancy and confidence, liberate our subdued lust of freedom, start to enliven the bleak outlook of our life story, and technicolor the sky of our expectations. (“With confidence”)” ― Erik Pevernagie

Pleasure avoids pain,

Be careful what you wish for,

Praxis ball and chain,

Modus operandi whore,

Hat on a hat pane profane.

When consequentialist theories are developed in terms of an equally shallow psychology of the good – such as a crude form of hedonism – the results can sometimes strike sensible people as revolting and inhuman. People can be reduced to simple repositories of positive or negative sensory states, and their humanity is lost sight of entirely. – Allen W. Wood
