When fools shout…

Applause ensues.

And their supporters echo.

Because the sound that represents the hollow declaration of “greatness” is a distraction from the ugliness, dismay of what they know to be true.

The cancer of their own self loathing.

Hating themselves.

Attacking others as a proxy for themselves, as their cowardice won’t allow them to face the monster in the mirror.

They drift into the orbit of those who say “kind things” about them, because they lack the capacity to see goodness or any semblance of decency within.

Not unlike diabetics who lack the ability to produce insulin, it (adoration) must be injected, externally.

Projection is a dangerous weapon.

Be wary of those who hate themselves…

We should be duty bound to position ourselves on a higher plateau.
