Is your LIFE improvised? Or are you a slave to the conventions of a society bent on "clubbing" you to death? Stop and think about the word CLUB for a few minutes ("an association of persons for some common object"). If yer' background includes some kinda' preppie nonsense about fraternities, the "ELKS", "LIONS", or other groups along those lines - you'll prob'ly relate the word to th' "high times" you had during college, or perhaps in the rotting institutions we call churches.
Think about CLUB in relation to it's other context, though... "a heavy usually tapering staff especially of wood wielded as a weapon". A way to hurt someone who doesn't agree with you! A way to POUND the krap out of a person with a belief contrary to yours! Now, combine the 2 meanings - "an association of persons usually wielded as a weapon." Admittedly, that's a "Zzaj-version" (i.e., perversion) of the meanings, but your deliberations might well lead you to the same conclusion I've come to (for many years now).
The concept is so ingrained in our society (& societies for many thousands of years now) that it seems perfectly allright, right? What could be the harm in forming a group based on common beliefs? In stating that the goals of the group are a, b, c and d? It all sounds innocent enough, I suppose... but what do we teach our children when we participate in a "club"? I believe the message that they perceive is "it's OK to use force to make others conform". If you think that's nonsense - what about the reports of extreme "hazing" at college campuses across our country? It may not be true that all clubs resort to such extreme measures of violence... but it's not necessarily (only) overt physical violence that causes the ruination & perversion of our youth.
"Exclusion" is just as powerful a tool as a blow to the head! & (just) what do "clubs" do? What about your local church club? Don't they look down their noses at anyone who doesn't believe the way they do? Say "little things" about them? Make sure they don't get invited to events that involve only "members of the club"?
I believe "clubs" (in the sense of groups of people banded together) are for weaklings. For those who have no life of their own. No "goals" of their own. People who must band together because they are afraid that their beliefs carry no weight.
Of course, we all KNOW what the "next" club will be... a group of rabid raiders bent on the destruction of this Zzaj-philosophy of independence & improvised life! Sign up TODAY!!! :-)
THINK it OVER, volkz!
