There's a sanity and purity to the personal boundaries I developed just by being a dunce. They kept me from following the path of the average white male and his habitual tendencies towards tyranny. It made sure that I aligned with companions who enrich the field. Best yet, it made me age slowly and with ease.
I always say its better to be an idiot than a slave.
Cool to dip the banana in that chocolate dip, but never leave it there permanently, so to speak.
