Stating the Obvious

For long I have refrained from writing about prevalent, plaguing social issues such as the bully that is patriarchy, pressures of marriage for age rather than reason, the stench and hypocrisy that is politics and more. Though I could never articulate why I couldn’t bring myself to do it, today I have found someone who has so aptly penned what I never could. He said, and I quote:

“What’s wrong with discourses about the obvious is that they corrupt consciousness with their easiness, with the speed with which they provide one with moral comfort, with the sensation of being right.”
– Joseph Brodsky, On Grief And Reason: Essays

One must pick this book of essays. Stuff that genius is made of.

My mind is blown.
