Burn Baby, Burn!

Goethe said, “There is no art in turning a goddess into a witch, a virgin into a whore; but the opposite operation, to give dignity to what has been scorned, to make the degraded desirable, that calls either for art or for character.”

So why then do we like burning effigies of traitors like Judas?

Maybe in the deepest and darkest corner of the human heart, we really take delight in the delivery of what we call just desserts.

thus spake the Barefoot Baklesa
