That thing about humiliation is interesting. Wole Soyinka's book 'The Climate of Fear' is subtitled 'The Quest for Dignity in a Dehumanizing World.' He asserts that religious fanaticism is the main motivator but that humiliation is another. We all want to live dignified lives, Soyinka says, but many are denied the opportunity because of poverty, oppression, and powerlessness in the face of global change.

Great post, Heretik.

Heretik, you do have a way with words. Apparently, the God of George Bush is a good American and a Republican, very patriotic and loyal to American foreign policy. He is not a God who judges or questions, but a God who legitimizes projects of war and domination.

Bush puts things in simplistic terms because he is a simpleton. Although I'm certain simpletons everywhere are insulted to be compared to him.
Complexities are not his forte. That's why he needs 'unka karl' (better known as 'trud blossom') to get him through all the big stuff. I can only imagine what he must be going through thinking he might have to move over and sit at that big desk if 'unka karl' has to 'go away'. He can't really depend on grandpa dicky, cause too much stress might cause him to croak (we could only hope). Whoever will take care of poor little georgie boy?
I'd bet they've had to lay in an extra supply of 'depends' lately.
