There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' Isaac Asimov

Inimicus Dei Constituitur

I had a dream last night --
you took my hand and said to me:
Rise.
Together we flew from that desert
over the highest peaks, to the place
where Earth and Sky become one.
We plunged into the Sea
your hand in mine.
Sleep found us 'neath the waves;
cradled in each other's arms
we dreamed a dream within a dream
while the Waters loosed our bonds
and mixed our minds,
'til I could not tell
who was I
nor
who was you.
