Forgiveness is Overrated.

The Continuing Adventures of Eco Boy vs. Yoga Girl.

"The below is an excerpt of a forthcoming novella. It’s autobiographical fiction (with the emphasis on fiction). Book forthcoming in Spring 2012, the first from elephant journal press."

"Forgiveness is taught by spiritualists, government officials and rich people so that the oppressed will remember to stay calm and peaceable. Forgiveness is nice. But it is not necessary to the moral life.
Non-violent protest borne of righteous anger is the stuff of enlightenment—not a willingness to let injustice get a pass."
~ Dr. Willard Evans

Forgiveness is overrated, he figured. Mothers matter more than forgiveness. Forgiveness is a weak stupid value that pontificating loser liberals like to drone on about.

“Bearing a grudge is like holding a hot rock,” says Buddhism. “It only hurts the one holding it.”

F**k that. You f**k with my family, I will bear that hot rock longer than Job bore all that bulls**t from Old-Testament-God Himself. And if I ever have the luck to be slightly-too-drunk one night, and you have the bad luck to cross my path, I will enjoy punching you in the nose. Twice, if that’s what it takes. I want you humbled. I want you to be sorry. I want you to never do that again to a weak vulnerable ignorant helpless woman.

The Crime.
