Pride & Prejudice

First, we need to define banchering.

It is an act, in essence; somewhat like behaviour or a characteristic. A bancher is an inanimate object — material and tangible. A bancher need not always exist to be able to bancher. How you perceive banchering depends on your moral and intellectual composition.

For some, banchering is a matter of pride; passionate. Others see it as an unsuitable act, they find various means and arguments to demean banchering. It may be so, that a bancher is the villain really, and may be considered harmful from an objective point of view. Propaganda and lethally slow indoctrination, however, make a demon of the bancherer. What purpose, the cursing attack on an inanimate object? So the bancher itself is never harmed — never made a subject of contest and conflict. The bancherer and banchering become the target.

Bancherers continue to take pride in banchering, and the people against them continue cursing, with immense prejudice.

Reflection and Two More

And, the struggle of pride & prejudice continues. They are of equal prowess, pride & prejudice. Neither will ever surrender or offer a truce. And like some super heroes who gain energy and strength through anger, pride & prejudice continue to grow from strength to strength. There is never a meeting point, except the battlefield.

Pride’s raison d’être (in banchering, for example), is possession by passion. A love that has explored itself thoroughly — inside-out and has become very aware of itself and its existence.

Prejudice has a very different reason for existence. It exists for its own sake. It is a hermaphrodite of sorts, growing by itself on a very thin base of misconception. Always unaware of the foundation.

Pride & prejudice collide at the battlefield of silence. Where dialogue is impossible. Where pride will not explain itself and prejudice will not hear anything.

Banchering, over the lifetime of being human, has changed form and structure many times. It is a notation of the cyclic interplay of opposites (to borrow and modify an idea from Heraclitus). Each notation (or form) of banchering has lived a great life and died a mongrel’s death, only to rise again in a new avatar.

Risen because pride will never allow it to die and prejudice will never allow it to live. And in the new form, sides change. Some pride becomes prejudice. And the other way round.

Banchering survives, while pride & prejudice continue the quarrel.
