A Quote by Raphie on co-generation, xy, culture wars, and silence

The culture wars of the Sixties have returned, but silently this time, and they are being played out in bohemian dive bars and on social software sites. Just call it Generation XY, a two in one proposition coupling all those Gen-exers trapped between idealism and despair, and all those socially conscious Gen Y types who came just a bit after us.

A Quote by Raphie on holocaust, world war ii, when good men do nothing, and murder war

She told me there was a reason God had taken the young man, his corpse riddled with 15 stab wounds and 83 bullets. I told her "There is a reason indeed. Same way as there was a reason 12 million Jews, Gypsies, Poles, Gays Handicapped and others died back during World War II. A whole lotta good men did exactly what they are doing now. You don’t know what that is? Exactly.You would know if they were."

A Quote by Raphie on war, collateral damage, benign neglect, and looking away

There was once a war and many people died. There was also much collateral damage. The people were the collateral. And everyone saw who bothered to look, but pretended they didn’t.

A Quote by Raphie on wisdom, screwing, baby, actions have consequences, learning, and knowledge

Wisdom is kind of like screwing. The consequences aren't noticed until later. Only kind of, though, because we don't need anyone to tell us, after we learn it the first time ayway, that the the screwer is the father to the baby.

A Quote by Raphie on the new deal, jesus, american dream, shame, god, america, and united states

Who the holy heck is going to talk all high and mighty like about the J-man and tell me that THIS is the American Dream he’s sitting there all right handed and all, patting Him on the back, saying “Hey, good job Dad.” Where the bloody hell is your SHAME America? Wake the heck on up… Did you all miss the memo where it says The New Deal was all about making sure we didn’t succumb to violent revolution?
