Manliness does not follow a false definition of justice
that tries to use force to banish all categories and generalizations
to make a “super-flat” world
(a term from a present-day Japanese authority on esthetics whom I can’t cite properly right now and whose own positions on these matters I do not know)
where most expressions are declared equal
but in fact only one set of expressions is allowed at a time,
as negotiated and decided from moment to moment by “the times”
That’s not justice and not manliness.
It’s something like the Borg Collective of the 1980′s and 1990′s Star Trek series. The movement toward super-flat-ness has been here for much longer than that, but not in total control.
Don’t obey when the world says to shave your face flat!
