On the eve of the end of the Mayan calendar (pacific time), the day that religious nut-jobs and armageddon enthusiasts alike have salivated over for decades upon decades, the day they would label again and again the world's end, on this day I would like to publish a quote from the first author that made me hate myself, and coincidentally, made me want to write and influence others in kind.  This says it all.

“With each day more and more of the truth was impossible to ignore while the disease instantly and automatically rationalized the truth into an acceptable distortion. Their disease made it possible for them to believe whatever lies it was necessary for them to believe to continue to pursue and indulge their disease, even to the point of them believing they were not enslaved by it, but were actually free.” 

– Hubert Selby Jr. in Requiem for a Dream
