Eternal conflict between spiritual light and material darkness.

 

Eternal balance.  

 

Battles won and lost in an unwinnable eternal war.

 

And then comes the genius strategy for total victory:  Promote the balance to achieve imbalance.

 

Lock them into eternal hopelessness while looting and raping them again and again and again.  Here's one of the ways:

 

Manichaeism noted in American presidential politics since 1932 manifests in the balance of families and individuals:

 

Prescott Bush -- Joseph P. Kenedy

 

George H. W. Bush -- John F. Kennedy

 

George W. Bush -- John F. Kennedy, Jr.

 

And out of sequence:

 

Ronald Reagan -- Franklin Roosevelt

 

Seen another way: Two political parties, interchangeable identifications with light and darkness.

 

Eternal balance promoted to achieve imbalance.

"[Y]ou can't blame the innocent, they are always guiltless. All you can do is control them or eliminate them. Innocence is a kind of insanity." -- Graham Greene, The Quiet American

"If an individual, through either his own volition or events over which he had no control, found himself taking up residence in a country undefined by flags or physical borders, he could be assured of one immediate and abiding consequence. He was on his own, and solitude and loneliness would probably be his companions unto the grave." -- James Lee Burke, Rain Gods

a wind has blown the rain away and blown
the sky away and all the leaves away,
and the trees stand. i think i too have known
autumn too long
-- e. e. cummings
