Men rebel. That much is true and obvious. But what is the last resort? What is the first?
With old age all of our dignity and our rights slowly get taken away or lost until we have near nothing left.
When first born we have to learn our rights, reponsibillities and ultimately our limits.
I think that during both of these times and indeed through our whole life just one small and seemingly minute option to rebel against all forms of tirany and oppression. That is:
To miss. Young boys do it clearly on purpose – the toilet bowl is larger than their head and yet they still manage to spray urine all up the wall or over the floor.
Prisoners do it – when they have no rights and everything they do is monitored an judged. Excrement up the wall and pee in the corner.
Men in their prime. 30 – 45 reaching a peek in their career. Imagine them having a really bad meeting with the boss. I can imagine the need to pee in his plant pot or all over his chair. It’s almost animal.
Old infirm men, living in a home. Well it may be accidental and shakes because of the arthritis but after so many years of being able to pee standing up I think they will continue to do so. Even if they constantly miss. Because let’s face it – it’s the last vestige of rebellion. To be able to say screw you I’m going to pee on the floor. Standing up.
I might of taken the random thought too far, taken a theory out of context but maybe the animal inside us will always mark our territory.
I might suggest this to some waring factions in the middle east. Why don’t you all just pee on the land that’s yours and stop arguing. Go back to basics. Anyway, I’m off to the bathroom.
