Spiritual War

June 27, 2007

I met a guy in the Green Muse this morning who told me that we are in a spiritual war. He said, “You know, it’s like Dylan said, ‘You gotta serve somebody, serve Satan or the Lord.'” It brought to mind the movie Fight Club, where Tyler (Pitt) says:

Man, I see in fight club the strongest and smartest men who have ever lived. I see all this potential — God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas and waiting tables;  they’re slaves with white collars. Advertisements have them chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit they don’t need. We are the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no great war, or great depression. Our great war is a spiritual war. Our great depression is our lives. We’ve all been raised by television to believe that one day we’ll all be millionaires and movie gods and rock stars — but we won’t.
