Something about time in my Facebook timeline this morning:
I've been thinking about what has brought the
white supremacy movement to the surface:
"The past is never dead. It's not even past." William Faulkner
The rest of the quote is even more interesting see https://www.azquotes.com/quote/1372989
William Faulkner Quote
The past is never dead. It's not even past. All of us labor in webs spun long before we were born, webs of heredity and environment, of desire and consequence, of history and eternity. Haunted by wrong turns and roads not taken, we pursue images perceived as new but whose providence dates to the dim dramas of childhood, which are themselves but ripples of consequence echoing down the generations. The quotidian demands of life distract from this resonance of images and events, but some of us feel it always.
Enjoyed the read. Lot of truth in this, I think.
Faulkner is my favorite writer. He unscrambles the secret family lines of the old South.
The entire quote is thought provoking. I hope that we will move on from some of the bad things in our past but keep the memories so as not to repeat past mistakes.
The seas of white people at Trump rallies tells all. All but a few Republicans in Congress embraced Qanon recently.
