A Most Curious Memo

by Christopher Lovejoy on January 20, 2021

The urgent memo that follows contains a brief message to humanity that appears in the form of a warning with cosmic significance. I cannot vouch for its authenticity, but I can say this: it rings true!


Memo to Humanity

From: The Twilight Zone

Date of Release: 01.20.2021

Re: The State of Your World

Message:

Reason is not a luxury;
Logic is not the enemy;
Truth is not a menace!

Avoid, bypass, discard,
dismiss, evade, or ignore
them at your own peril!

End of message

As I said, a brief message.

As a species of apparent misfits, morons, muggles, monsters, and masters in mass retreat, it would seem that we can neither afford to bury this urgent message nor cremate the body politic of love, trust, and care (which gives meaning to this message) without serious consequence.

What do you think?

If you know the enemy and you know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles; if you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained, you will also suffer a defeat; but if you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.

~ Sun Tzu, The Art of War

A podium and a prison is each a place – one high and the other low – but
in either place, your freedom of choice can be maintained, if you so wish!
