from the pervasive atmosphere of self-destructiveness,
the mutant vestige of a class society,
where once the aristocracy
disdained all their subordinate lifeforms.
Now that the aristocracy is a historical farce,
that disdain persists as a tendency to self-hatred amongst some of its peoples.
Where once the upper classes were there for the hating, now there is nothing. Casting about, some may choose to hate their "own kind", or hate themselves. Who will teach them to draw back from the hating, into the fear, and then to draw back from the fearing, then to venture forth with collective optimism?
