Monsters

I’ve had this quote sitting in the sticky notes app on my desktop for a couple of weeks. It’s time for it to go, so maybe you can make some use of it.

We must not be frightened nor cajoled into accepting evil as deliverance from evil. We must go on struggling to be human, though monsters of abstractions police and threaten us.
– Robert Hayden

What monster of abstraction most polices and threatens you? For me, probably anything that begins with “the war on …” or includes the word, “warfare.”
