Language Is No Respecter Of Persons

A language is nothing but information — sounds and symbols.

The sounds don’t know — and don’t care — who you are, where you’re from or who your parents were. The sounds are just vibrations of the air. The sounds don’t know — and don’t care — what people’s expectations are. The  sounds just are.

The symbols are just sequences of lines and spaces. They don’t know or care about anything either. They just are.

Scared? Doubtful? Not exactly running a surplus of the old self-efficacy? Don’t think you can “learn” this “language”? Don’t “learn” then. Don’t think about it. Just replicate. Imitate. It’s just air vibrations and line patterns.

    Language, lemme tell ya. It gives you no respect. No respect at all!

    If language respected people more then we’d all be fluent. But yeah, you got it down to a science there.

    Very good way of looking at it (or detaching oneself from it, rather). It’s nothing to fuss over, they’re just waves and lines. You know, vibrations and lines are so disrespectful they don’t even respect their ancestors – they don’t give a damn about their mecha. They deserve no respect whatsoever, sitting there all smug and… liney and… vibrationally…
    In fact, Hitler was made of lines and vibrations. So everytime you bow down to a language, you are bowing down to Hitler.
