Quote from: lumpley on December 01, 2005, 03:24:15 PMThing is, the war in Ron's stories isn't between "Forge thinkers" and "non-Forge thinkers" at all. That's just not what the metaphor is - and if that's what you look for it to be, of course it'll completely miss you.
Quote from: John Kim on December 01, 2005, 04:12:56 PMWell, I'm not claiming to speak for Ron or be an official interpretation of him -- I'm just posting a metaphor of my own feelings. What are your interpretations of his "war" post and my "playgrounds" post?
Quote from: Mark Woodhouse on December 01, 2005, 05:29:09 PMI see the places where my friends are buried, where people I never approached with anything but friendship turned on me and wrecked everything I cared about because it wasn't right and good and proper.I'm done fighting. All that ever does is make more hurt. But I am building myself a sandcastle with my friends, and if anybody wants to come play with us, great. But they better not be coming to press-gang us into building a nice house for them and then kick us to the curb, because we aren't going to let that happen. And they most especially better not be coming with candy in one hand and a club in the other, because we're wise to that crap now.
