Dogs at Oscars

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

At long time ago, when I still occasionally watched TV news, there was an item about a large outdoor rock concert where the intrepid police officers with trained dogs were sniffling out illicit drugs amongst the youngsters.

The participants, in their desire to please the masters, repeat any politically correct meme with as much sincerity as they can fake. They think they are superior to everybody who has less money or no casting power, tell us how to behave, while they are only superior to normal people in their boundless hypocrisy.

Poor dogs. If let lose in the so called entertainment industry they would go crazy or demand the overtime. Poor people who take that sad rabble seriously.

About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.
