Executioner
    #24521755 - 08/01/17 12:23 AM (3 years, 9 months ago)

"Executioners have a short ‘life’. They get tired of the work. The soul sickens of it. After ten, twenty, a hundred death-rattles, the human being, however sub-human he may be, acquires, perhaps by a process of osmosis with death itself, a germ of death which enters his body and eats into him like a canker. Melancholy and drink take him, and a dreadful lassitude which brings a glaze to the eyes and slows up the movements and destroys accuracy. When the employer sees these signs he has no alternative but to execute the executioner and find another one.

   

    -From Russia With Love, Ian Fleming

Is the experience of so much death toxic to the idea of self and the organisms own futility.

We are dominated by our habits. To use an outdated euphemism "A walk in the park"

"What's good for the goose is good for the gander" never loses it's adroitness.
