A Chance Meeting with a Casual Aquaintance

I encountered a casual acquaintance at a coffee shop. I had only encountered him a few times a year ago. Neither of us were friends.


Around the time I knew him, another man- I'll call x - invited me to share his cell with him. A huge guy. The truth is, I declined because I thought we was such a fucking idiot, his ego was so implausibly big it wasn't even real, just a projection, a notational conceit. Thiiiiiis big, as it were. Lacking a reference space to reality, it would be projected on external situations, relating everything to himself. And he was an insecure, pathetic man who could not hide his weakness in brawn

Waiting in line for coffee, my former acquaintance complimented my instincts: "It turns out you were right about x. He was a cell rapist."

Question: What does their operating program have to do reason? A historical perspective may be the only meaningful one. However the decision was made, it is not what guides them anymore.

To argue about them may leave very little to squabble over. To argue with such a person is worthless. Suppose the NDP member of parliament made a communist out of a hardened old tory with a well reasoned speech with wide-reaching implications. Even if that jaundiced politician really came to believe, It's perfectly possible they can reliably carry out their tasks having entirely turned on their friends and renounced their cause.

A greater power will not restore them to sanity.
