I dont know if this is the greatest lie ever told, but it bugs the living hell out of me.
"Patience is a virtue."
Virtue ? My furry butt it is!
Like consistency, it is a virtue of the dead. Among the living patience has next to no value. It is people being patient, which means that despite
various changes of government in various nations, the rich powerful few, are always able to exert thier power over the poor, powerless many. It is the
patience of the many, which means that these idiots and thier cheque books still rule the roost. If patience was abandoned in favour of immediate and
unstoppable rage, they would not dare to do what they do, the way they do it.
It is patience with murderers, child molestors, and serial rapists, which see prison populations grow, and prisons overcrowd. If there were less
patience in the system, then these wastes of flesh would be summarily removed from the gene pool, and thier upkeep would not drain our resources like
a cancer on an organ.
Patience means emotions which should be freely expressed, and worn on the sleeve, have to be swallowed , and opinions which ought to be acted upon,
ignored or repressed, all for the sake of virtue. Its utter rot. Be impatient. Impatience will stop people mugging old ladies, and shooting up drugs,
and murdering people for kicks. It will be better for the world than an over abundance of patience.
Obviously, I am not suggesting that one should smack a kid upside the head for being a slow learner, or that one ought to resort to violence without
just provocation. But remaining patient in the face of stimulus which ought to result in carnage, is not a virtue. It is as much of a sin as constant
rage, total anger, and unreasonable violence in the face of fair treatment.
