twenty three

Claude Debussy, besides having a stupid last name, is a brilliant composer and, at times, all one needs.

Amoral:

1. not involving questions of right or wrong; without moral quality; neither moral nor immoral.
2. having no moral standards, restraints, or principles; unaware of or indifferent to questions of right or wrong

Neither moral nor immoral is the important part of those definitions. And the indifference part. Amoral does not mean some beastly human who rapes and steals and kills. It simply means that they think right and wrong are silly concepts. Like the world is ever so dichotomous, like good and evil hang in equal balance, like they exist at all.

Morality is the weakness of the brain.

–Rimbaud

Morality exists only in humans. It’s a fabrication. Animals treat one another as the ought through biological necessity and something deeper, some sense of true love for the other, which is just another form of themselves. We have that, too, but we’ve renamed it morality and added all sorts of unnecessary rules to it.

I was going to make this grand sweeping post about the nature of morality and how i feel about it, but i’m tired. Or lazy. Amounts to the same thing, really.

I have no need for good souls: an accomplice is what I wanted.
