Leapdragon 2016 - Aron Hsiao Was Here

Quiet.  §

There is redemption in calamity, in loss, in shortcoming, it weakness, in indignity. This redemption is what we call poetry. Those who are indirectly responsible for creating it are destined to be forgotten by history. As it should be.

Those who are directly responsible are the antiheroes whose sins are indifferentiable from heroism.

It turns out that at the end of the day good and evil are both laudable; it is the bureaucratic, legalistic, and moderate impulses that are despicable.

This tells us that moderation must be avoided at all costs.

Call it the ethical McDonaldization of Nietzsche.

Or just call it deviance and anti-normativity.

After all, I did not by into the program when I had the chance.
