And we have done this since time immemorial. We have projected our evil onto scapegoats. And then we have sacrificed the poor scapegoat, usually an innocent lamb.
And there are people today who boast about being washed in the blood of a lamb.
I ate lamb the other night; does that count?
Hope is the denial of reality. It is the carrot dangled before the draft horse to keep him plodding along in a vain attempt to reach it. We should remove the carrot and walk forward with our eyes open. -- Raistlin Majere
