A thousand years ago, scientists who wondered about consciousness and the nature of reality were burned at the stake. We still haven’t recovered from that and it’s left us with a culture that no longer investigates consciousness, except on the fringes. – David O. Russell

Nailing to a cross,

Persecute sans due process,

Rack and ruin lip gloss,

Nullification aggress,

Martyrize coup de grace guess.

Questioning the status quo can result in banishment, imprisonment, ridicule or being burned at the stake, depending on your era, your locale, and the sacred cows you wish to butcher. – Gene Spafford
