saw jim ball
i saw jim ball last night, he was in town for IBC. he bought me dinner at nachtwacht, then we walked over to café blauwbrug where there was no crowd, and sat outside and drank some belgian beer.
i mentioned my theory that the will for nationhood seems to always arise from the sense that somebody else is ruling us unfairly. the desire for freedom, jim said, becomes the desire for power. and that's when everything gets fucked up.
