The Concept of Society

“Everyone is isolated from everyone else. The concept of society is like a cushion to protect us from the knowledge of that isolation. A fiction that serves as an anaesthetic.”
Paul Bowles

Irks me to see what price is sometimes paid for ‘belonging’ to such a ‘society’.

Hours, days and weekends away from small girl children, money she can ill-afford for travel to ‘meetings’ and ‘services’ far away, clothes to prove you really are a true believer . . .
