Institutions cannot love. The more loving a culture is, the flatter it is.
Our institutions are distinctively perpendicular, top down, Babelesque and male. They’re modernity’s dinosaurs, owing their existence to fear of the feminine. And it’s an entirely counter-phobic fear—paranoid, aggressive, ritualized and conforming. Challenged on their dysfunction, they say they’ll change the culture. Sure. When fish ride bicycles.
Our mistrust of institutions is innate and well founded. The more organized a thing is, the deader it is, and the more perverse. Ecclesiasts do their best but the soul cannot be organized.
