is the self-righteousness of the self-righteous that blocks them from
the conscious realization of their self-righteousness. In that condition
their egos have no recourse--in trying to construct a workable
reality--but to project their faults onto other people; only this allows
that self-righteousness to survive. It's a problem.
I am an introverted blue collar pilgrim, surviving near the center of the continent, on the fringes of a shopworn civilization. I abide in rooms full of partially-read tomes, each bookmarked with the fragment of a shattered illusion.
