How do you catch a monkey?

Shaka kaSenzangakhona the Zulu chief conquered by the English in the 18th century made a political statement that astounded the English commanders and statesmen.

How do you catch a monkey? His response was “You put something shiny in a bottle.”
The monkey will reach in and grab the shiny thing and grasp it. The monkey so wants the shiny thing that it will not let go. It cannot speed away with the weight of the bottle and it will not let go. You can then grab the monkey and roast it for dinner.

Watching a newscast of the Emmy’s and all the fashions and jewels and the so called beautiful people in all their regalia appears to me to be monkeys caught with the shiny things.

Mindless robots being lead by the blind megalomaniacs and you do not even see it.

Come home to real life and away from the idolatry of the big enterprise. Learn something of value. Grow food, raise animals, read books, play with your kids. It is not too late.
