"NO, listen, what happened was this: they lied to you, sold you ideas of good & evil, gave you distrust of your body & shame for your prophethood of chaos, invented words of disgust for your molecular love, mesmerized you with inattention, bored you with civilization & all it usurious emotions."
(Hakim Bey - CHAOS: The Broadsheets of Ontological Anarchism)
As i was sitting the other day in a cafe, and there was this old lady that passed by, wearing a short dress and showing her legs. My first impression was what this old lady doing by showing her ugly, cellulite-full legs. But, then again, in less then a second i thought back: well, this is definitely not gonna be my reaction. Who said that she cannot enjoy her age and still think of herself as a sexy person by wearing that dress.
By doing what she does best, she was evading the system, practicing every day life. She is a model for all those who believe in emancipation and chaos.
society has bored us with ideas of beauty. The many steps it created to conform and unify the human beings has put pressure under many.
However, very few of us practice every day life. Very few of us are willing to shout from the rooftops that we, as a nation who believes in "crawling between the walls of church state school & factory" will continue doing so.
"So let's take our pistols to bed & wake up the city at midnight", let's write our own diaries of life, ride our legs in the cities. Let's kiss and cuddle, dream and paint the surrealist in us.
