Some use the opportunity that chaos provides to manipulate others into doing things that help no one. It makes social media friend AND foe. Chaos brings out true nastiness and violence in those who are itching to cause trouble and those who are afraid (what else could it be?) of the "other". The other who is black or Asian or gay or not what the world should be.
Does the Other make such persons feel weak and helpless? To feel superior, someone needs to be inferior. If you are afraid of a challenge to your superiority what do you do?
If no one felt superior (or inferior), what would that look like? Impossible to know.
Chaos can bring out goodness and thoughtfulness in others too and I am thankful for that.
The theme this year was Mask and Metaphor.
I don't know who the creator of this piece is but I enjoyed their work.
When I first heard it sung by Concrete Blonde, I didn't know it was a cover of Leonard Cohen's song. Listening to the CB version this morning made me want to write , maybe because the song is so good and darkly funny.
