16 october, the question is: shame. what is its origin and why are we hounded by its miserable shadow? does the mare feel shame as she couples with the stallion? are they deaf to everything their loins are telling them until we grant them a marriage certificate? i think not. to my mind, shame is nothing but a product of education. meanwhile, old father kaulbach still blindly insists - in every single sermon - that it’s “deeply rooted in our sinful human nature.” which is why i now refuse to go to church.
