Fall Guy – Blog No. 4

FallGuy

I once knew a person who jumped off a sort-of makeshift bridge to demonstrate his expertise to a skeptical audience of one. That was just as well. It blew up soon thereafter. I admired his wisdom, his vision. Better to be a jumper with implicit faith in flight than a smithereen.

When you become the fall guy, which you inevitably will, where you land is sometimes a surprise. Sometimes. It all depends on which way is up. If you know your ups from your downs and your insides from your outsides, the prospect of landing intact is all that you need to worry about. Asides from that – I would say too much worrying about the whats and ifs is pointless. Worry cannot stop an actuality from happening. Pre-emptive care can do that.

If, perchance, we should interpret ‘fall guy’ as the guy responsible for autumn – or more specifically, for autumnal thinking – then we must suggest that it is the right time for him to get busy living. He needs to pit his reason against the season. When autumnal thinking is allowed to get out of hand, which it currently is, the system can do little but sit on its sidelines and watch itself sink into a perpetual winter. That would be fine if the system would sink alone. It won’t, though. It will try every thing it knows to take all of its advocates with it.

  1. Everyone needs a fall guy; someone to blame them for bad things that happen. Man, white man is to blame for many things. Those in power are to blame for what they do. Religions are to blame for many wars. We must pay for our sins and the sins of our parents so they are to blame. Our dad, he accepts the blame for many thing and if he could he would change and make things better. Jesus he is to blame because he could not make everything better for everyone so he is to blame and so much to blame that he is given the death sentence. Everyone needs a fall guy and someone to blame. Eve she eats the fruit, so she is to blame. Or is it Satan or evil doing that is to blame?
