it's not just a movie

Just as I have to face that Jump You Fuckers is not just a song, just a slogan, just some soothing black humor, you have to face that They Live is not just an affectation to express your taste in cinema. We can't keep ourselves this divorced from reality. We can't let them keep us this divorced from reality. We have to wake up, and learn to stay that way. It's right in plain sight. Hidden.

Not by them.

Enlightenment is not serenity in the face of all provocation, not bliss where others yet agonize. It is when you finally see how unwilling to feel things fully you have been for your whole life. It's when you begin actually feeling and actually ceasing to find excuses to avoid it. It is not that you don't see. It's that seeing is dangerous.
