It is better to be an outcast, a stranger in one’s own country, than an outcast from one’s self. It is better to see what is about to befall us and to resist than to retreat into the fantasies embraced by a nation of the blind. Chris Hedges
Ants are kind of good things. This country is full of ants. But they are a community of sorts. When you watch them they make contact with each other as the carry on with some kind of work. It only takes a second but they touch and carry on with their work. As long as they stay outside everything is fine, but when they come into your house you have to spray them.
