Whether a word happened or not doesn’t matter because all the matters is that it is true.
The fact life never happened, I was reminded of the other day when I was sat down with friends for a beer under the trees of an outdoor café. After we had talked about the losses and the gains experienced by some of us during the lockdown, the question came up: “Isn’t life unfair?” but that’s the wrong question.
“Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.” – Shakespeare
The right question is why do we believe in words that never happened? A large part is we tend to believe the stories told at school but, of course, there are other reasons as well.
Be it as it may, Shakespeare’s fury is still on display in courtrooms today. It’s about life that the fighting and fuzzing is all about, they want us to believe. Why wouldn’t they, after it has worked for them ever since they came up with the word in the first place? When it’s about keywords, life is hard to beat. But that doesn’t mean the self-appointed guardians of life give a rat’s ass about life, because they don’t.
The only thing they’re interested in is in the control over people’s bodies and minds, women’s bodies in particular. Life is just a disguise, a means to their end. And if the past is anything to go by, they will continue to get away with it. So let’s rather deal with the future now — let’s stop them.
