Loving the Alien

[ #10733 ]
Dear Log,

«Dealing with a problem like the homeless, we have almost no sense that as individuals we can make any difference. We seem not to believe that we can change the condition of the American household, which is in disrepair--mothers unhappy, mothers being beaten by papa, the children being abused by somebody. We refer our problems to agencies or to the public realm because we sense more and more that some intimate circle has been fragmented.»

--"The New, New World: Richard Rodriguez on culture and assimilation"

When I am a thousand years old and a hive of computer programs and am producing a low-wattage copy of myself that will generate unreadable sociohistory books, I will encourage it to start out with the title AK's and Autism: Pre-Nanotech American Culture for Dummies or maybe something more cryptic, like Processed Populaces: Spam, Jell-o, and the Convergence of Mental Materialisms.
