“Helpless Struggle” 

MM approaches an art piece and looks at the description plate. “Helpless Struggle – Oil on canvas.” In what appears to be the middle of the ocean there is an enormous wave about to engulf the silhouette of a man standing alone on a rock. In the foreground another silhouette of a rock with waves crashing against it displays the silhouettes of two men. They are engaged in a dynamic struggle. For some reason Metaphysical Man can’t take his eyes off the painting. Suddenly he notices the sound of an animated discussion gradually getting louder as they approach him. He recognizes one of the voices as that of his friend Dan. “I’m telling you it represents man’s struggle against his environment. It is inevitable of course that he win this struggle. It reminds me of the dramatic conclusion to the  Who’s rock opera Quadrophenia. In the song entitled ‘the Rock’ the protagonist dissatisfied with his society boards a small boat and flees to a rock in the middle of the sea.” The other voice, which Double M does not recognize responds, “I don’t agree with you. I think the piece is blasphemous. The artist is obviously insinuating that man is without hope and destined to be swept away by his environment. It’s sacrilege!” Metaphysical Man feels a hand on his shoulder. “Metaphysical Man is an expert art critic. Let’s let him settle this for us.” At that moment the deafening sound of breaking glass draws the attention of everyone in the building. This is followed by the sound of hundreds of motorcycle engines revving up. Metaphysical Man begins running towards the open window. At the same time he rips open his tuxedo shirt revealing the MM logo on his chest.

HOME INVASION

I’m trying not to run for my keyboard every time something happens. Especially considering I have an approaching deadline to finish my book ‘Metaphysical Man the Don Quijote of the Digital Age’. Nevertheless I feel as if I need to write about something that happened last night especially since it ties in with something I mentioned in a previous post. And that’s home invasions. 

Yesterday my wife and I were approached on the street by a soldier who wanted to know who we were, what we were doing and where we are from. As he questioned us I noticed a truck full of his fellow officers emptying onto the street preparing for a raid. While we explained our nationality using strong American accents many others were arrested and loaded into the trucks. As I said, I wasn’t planning on writing about this event as it is becoming commonplace. But the same night we heard some sort of altercation occurring behind our house. I peeked out the window and saw an angry soldier yelling at the neighbors in broken English about something. Suddenly the large soldier walked to the wooden window of the neighboring house, lifted his powerful leg which was decked in blue  camouflage which if I’m not mistaken indicates the Air Force. With his shiny black combat boot he noisily smashed in the wooden window while the neighbors stood by afraid to interfere. After a while a bare arm came out the window and threw something onto the ground. It could have been his documents but it was most likely money. The soldier picked it up and walked away satisfied.

We have the proper documents but I’d be lying if I said the accelerating aggressiveness of this particular ‘Control’ doesn’t have me a little worried. I can’t help but wondering, will my home eventually be raided?

Exclusive Interview with William Chasterson by Metaphysical Man !!!

MM: Thank You for taking the time to sit down with me for this interview mr. Chasterson.

WC: Call me William. It’s my pleasure. It’s not everyday one gets interviewed by a real superhero.

MM: William I first want to address a recent controversy regarding your blog. Some readers were offended by some of the quotes you posted from historical figures who have communistic or national socialist ideologies. Are you a Communist or Nazi?

WC: No. Communists, Nazis, and for that matter even Democrats and Republicans all have one thing in common, and that is a firm belief in man’s ability to rule himself. I do not have this faith. I believe that if man could successfully rule himself it would have been conclusively proven over the past thousands of years of human history. Despite great advances in technology man has only found more effective ways to exploit and destroy one another. I do not believe in the philosophies of Friedrich Nietzsche or Karl Marx.

MM: Then why did you post their quotes?

WC: What I posted were excerpts from my new book ‘Breed the secret design to maintain racial inequality among the despised classes’. The quotes are actually chapter titles in my book. Like most books the chapter title gives a clue as to what is about to take place in the story. The same is true of my book. My book is fiction. I challenge anyone who has actually read my book to present me with evidence that I am advocating racial superiority or any other catylist for human suffering.

MM: In order to take you up on that challenge wouldn’t it be at their own cost? Your book is not free.

WC: Actually for the month of September I am offering ‘Breed the secret design to maintain racial inequality among the despised classes’ for free. Anyone who wants can download a free copy from the smashwords website using the coupon code found on the homepage of my blog williamchasterson.wordpress.com. Judge for yourself the content of my book at no personal cost.

MM: That sounds like a fair deal. What’s next for William Chasterson?

WC: As you know I’m working on a project that includes yourself and examines how modern man views himself in contrast to others.

MM: When can we expect to see this project released?

WC: It’s due to be released the summer of 2015

MM: Thanks again for taking the time to be interviewed.

WC: Thank you for taking time off of fighting crime to conduct this interview.

Leon Trotsky

“You may not be interested in war but war is interested in you.”

– Leon Trotsky

 

“I walked deeper into the woods, as I heard my abductor approaching. She was relentless. No matter how far in I traveled, when I stopped for a moment I could hear her footsteps pursuing me. Finally I decided to break into a gallop. I would run fast and hard until I was sure she had turned back. So I ran for what seemed to be ages. I didn’t know where I was going I just knew I had to keep running. After I felt I had run a great distance, I began to feel safe from my pursuer. “She surely must have turn back by now. I have penetrated too far into this unknown area.” As the realization of how far I had penetrated began to sink into my mind, a new feeling emerged. The feeling of safety for having escaped capture quickly began to be replaced with feelings of insecurity. I stopped and hid behind a large tree. “I must listen to confirm that I am safe,” I decided. My ears moved slightly and adjusted to take in my new environment. I listened but all was silent in the direction of my pursuer. Gradually my ears began twitching and were drawn in the opposite direction. I could hear faint voices. I began walking toward these voices and as I did they became louder. It sounded almost like shouting but it was not quite shouting. As I continued to walk toward the voice I could here it distinctly now. The voice said,…..
