Delusions of the World

As a modern, civilized, techno-besotted human creature of the West, you walk every morning out into the political delusions of how you think the world works, righteous as a liberal.

Every evening you come home, smug as a conservative in your delusions of a world controlled by the laws of economics.

As a naturalist, you go out every morning and rerun every evening devastated by truth, with no delusions at all.
