Kate Kim the systems I see are yin-and-yang in nature. So one needs to understand that there is a duality and raw energy to life.
Austin is wickedly liberal but urban and the capital of the state of Texas and has a lot of independent life views.
Texoma area is rural and agriculture-based, and very conservative and has a lot of socialized and group life views. In fact, Medicare is based on the area's views of compassionate conservatism that to some may look like socialism.
Your work was amazing, so I tossed an angle playing with the anti-capitalism bit with socialized groups and decisions to branch out from your writing.
I used animals as additional place holders and areas of land to provide counterbalance as you did. They are wild but contained, but free but enslaved.
If you felt unsafe with my words, I apologize and take a bow for civility to you. The intent was to raise the level of abstraction and construction of thought as you did "beautifully" with the same raw blinding passion as your article did. It was like adding an additive to weed to give an extra "color".
I agree with you adage of the scariest person, and btw, I am a white male living a very rural area, but I love Chicken's Feet and I love Korean blood dishes.
Does that make me a Korean or Asian person? :)
