The Equality of Responsibility

the equality of responsibility as an issue pertaining to humanity
unless achieved in law and action
will always remain a logical fallacy
much like the notion that being thought to be not afraid constitutes bravery
or that the wealth of the Sassoon family was amassed legitimately

so the artist who given licence
has choice of what weight of responsibility to carry
and although potent his poetry may be
or opulent her melody
without honesty
it’s tantamount to propaganda, pillory, praise, conspiracy, fantasy…
since it all comes down to who you are
not what you wish to become
and only through action is your humanity fully exhibited

whether you are an Edison or Westinghouse…
ultimately, it’s what you do it for
that will be the true measure of your contribution

  1. Good to see you back, Heath. It’s most definitely true; Motive determines much of an action’s inherent worthiness. The Sassoons? I always thought Vidal was a nice guy; oh, well.

    I’m not sure we can even trust the laws which are a product of human beings.
