“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself. – Leo Tolstoy”

“We were now three months into the project. The badgers were of tremendous help in the construction of the wall. Their experience in building strong dams was much appreciated. At first the idea of surrounding Utopia with a wall of stone was met with resistance. However after I explained to everyone that it was absolutely necessary for our protection, the mood changed. Many had even become anxious to complete the wall as soon as possible. It was around this time that an unfortunate event took place that would altar Utopia’s future forever. Now this next part of the story is a little blurry to me. I’ll do my best to relate it to you exactly as I remember it. I hope you’ll forgive me if it comes off as a bit surreal.”

Chapter 7

“Extreme positions are not succeeded by moderate ones but by contrary extreme positions – Friedrich Nietzsche”

“Upon arriving at the site where the conference was to be held I was astounded by what I saw. First of all, the immense size of the structure we were about to enter greatly impressed me. Up to this point the largest animal made structure that I’d seen was the coliseum in Lumpenproleteria. But this edifice was at least three times as large. The other detail that took my breath away was the large number of animals entering and leaving the building. Despite the large numbers and the great diversity among the crowd there appeared to be order. I would never have imagined it possible to gather this many animals together without a stampede breaking out but here it was. “Come this way,” said our escort as he entered the building motioning for us to follow. “I’ll take you to the section that has been reserved for the Union of Animals.”

Friedrich Nietzsche

Indebtedness does not make men grateful, but vengeful; and if a little charity is not forgotten, it turns into a gnawing worm

– Friedrich Nietzsche

 

So there I was, standing at the edge of the Cuyamonga River staring down at the rushing water with a determined look in my eyes. The air was damp and had a briny smell. All kinds of thoughts were running through my head. “What does it feel like to drown?” I thought. “Will I hold my breath the entire time until the burning in my chest forces me to fill my lungs with icy water?” A sudden shudder shook my entire body as I thought of how cold the water must be. A nearby crack of a twig breaking suddenly stole my attention from the steady rumble of distant rapids. Quickly I looked back in the direction that I thought I heard the sound. All looked still. There was no one there, just trees and rocks. “Did I really hear something or is my mind just playing tricks?” As I turned back to face the water I could still picture the trees and rocks where I heard, or at least thought I heard the sound. “In this mental picture there was definitely someone there, watching me with piercing critical eyes.” …….

Chapter 6

“I sit on a man’s back, choking him and making him carry me, and yet assure myself and others that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his lot by all possible means – except by getting off his back – Leo Tolstoy”

“A cat that looked about my age suddenly stepped out of the shadows. “So, you are the one that’s been creating all of the buzz in Lumpenproletaria,” said the cat. I asked, “Are you the threshold guardian?” He rolled his eyes. “Follow me,” he commanded and turned back into the shadows. I quickly caught up with him. I was a little confused because I was told that Lumpenproletaria was a neutral territory yet the impression that Justice had left me with was that this guide was working for Socrates. I decided to inquire. “Excuse me sir, but …” “Let me ask you a question,” he abruptly interjected. “Are you a true believer? In animalism I mean. Its all right you can speak freely. In Lumpenproletaria you are not held accountable for what you say.” I was taken aback by his forwardness. “Yes,” I replied. “I believe that once all animals wake up and realize that we all belong to the same species we will be able to work together for lasting peace.”
