Shame. Shame never changes. Contemporary texts remind us of the trope. Ding a ling. Ding ding ding, ding ding. Shame is the social mode of fear. Fear of sickness, fear of death, fear of poverty - fear of solitude... (fear of ellipses?) a characteristic of many social beings. Aversion to shame drives subjects to braggadocios heights. Shame brings society to stare at idols of strength, power, savvy, skill. Shame brings us to worship at the feet of boredom. Without shame, we would crumble, lawless winds aggressing. Shame is such weakness. Shame. Shame. Shame...
