Thread Name: BS: The Basic Causes of Western Stupidity
Subject: RE: BS: The Basic Causes of Western Stupidity
As I was checking the threads, I ran across the one "Witches At The Bridge" (it's Up Above) and the title, naturally, made me think of the witches in Macbeth. The mental processing made me again think of the bad rep witches had, and then that they represented the temptation that lead to Macbeth's downfall -- the key to his hubris, if you will.

And that led me to realize that we all carry such "witches" within us.

We have the seeds of our own destruction with us, and it's up to us not to let them bloom.

(See? 'Most everything leads back to Ol' Bill.)
