  1. Good to have you back! The assholes are of course our modern day Puritans who in their oh so perfect lives suffer from (to quote Mencken) “the haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy”.

    Or to be more precise: They are the ascetic priests (from Nietzsche’s Genealogy of Morals) who are sick themselves in order to lead and dominate the masses through the cultivation of ressentiment. Fuck the moralists, the Puritans, and the ascetic priests! Let them lead their bloodless, pale lives.

    Should we even afford them the dignity of acceptance?

    PS: I’m writing this from L.A. where my wife and I are spending a month in blissful hedonism.
