RE: Plague ...Finale

in #writing11 months ago

Ha ha...I remember vividly a day in the university cafeteria being accosted by two profs who taught German Lierature who accused me of being a typical North American liberal (yes, small L) Well, like Pushkin, I declare, "I'm a bourgeois." I am what I am, conscious and unconscious but it's a social attitude - I'm basically apolitical, but I must admit I had Trump and his cadre of sycophants in mind when I wrote that story and those two profs would have been quite at home in his kind of America. I'm more an individualist and don't expect much from a government except that it provide the greatest good for the greatest number and resprect individual liberty and not oppress the aliens among us.
