PLP – 128 Memorial Day Tribute with Charles Bukowski’s the Genius of the Crowd

If you’re looking for practical tips and advice on Private Lending and how to keep your money safe as a Private Lender, then you are in the right place. But if you want to learn from my mistakes so you can avoid them, well then pull up a chair and pour yourself a drink my friend, because this podcast is just for you!

Today will be another quick episode, but I give you full permission to get off the treadmill or elliptical as soon as this episode concludes in just a few minutes.

But before we get to the heart of the matter, first I need to do a little housekeeping:

Today’s episode is airing on Memorial Day 2021, and as such it is in honor of those who perished while serving this great country of ours. But this episode is also in honor of the family members that were left behind, as well as the survivors who continue to battle years after their service is over.

So in the honor of all those mentioned above, I would like to read The Genius of the Crowd, by Charles Bukowski

 "there is enough treachery, hatred violence absurdity in the average

human being to supply any given army on any given day

and the best at murder are those who preach against it

and the best at hate are those who preach love

and the best at war finally are those who preach peace

those who preach god, need god

those who preach peace do not have peace

those who preach peace do not have love

beware the preachers

beware the knowers

beware those who are always reading books

beware those who either detest poverty

or are proud of it

beware those quick to praise

for they need praise in return

beware those who are quick to censor

they are afraid of what they do not know

beware those who seek constant crowds for

they are nothing alone

beware the average man the average woman

beware their love, their love is average

seeks average

but there is genius in their hatred

there is enough genius in their hatred to kill you

to kill anybody

not wanting solitude

not understanding solitude

they will attempt to destroy anything

that differs from their own

not being able to create art

they will not understand art

they will consider their failure as creators

only as a failure of the world

not being able to love fully

they will believe your love incomplete

and then they will hate you

and their hatred will be perfect

like a shining diamond

like a knife

like a mountain

like a tiger

like hemlock

their finest art"

  

 OK. Here’s the deal, I don’t charge money for this show, but there is a cost and I would be extremely grateful if you would help drive awareness to the show, to get the word out by leaving me an honest rating and review over at iTunes, Google Podcast or whatever platform you are using to hear my voice. 

It doesn’t take that long and it’s a small price for the value I try to provide. 

 

That’s gonna do it for Episode 128 and just a few final thoughts:
