Well, I’m not pessimistic. But after feeling dull as dishwater for so many years I just want to feel absolutely YIPPIE! before I die. To laugh out loud! I would like to see some things happen very very quickly, not filter down.

Shari, the joyful feeling you describe is restricted to people like Old Bob. That YIPPIE! is not for you. You would have to learn how to celebrate from me, and no one seems to have that willingness or that ability.
No one here understood when I said what one of the high points of my life was standing on the bridge over the Moscow Canal, looking straight at the Kremlin, fully lighted on a December night. Standing there in minus twenty, I gave the Kremlin the finger, and said, “I GOT you bastards!”
That was a moment I have described here often. But no one here understands what it meant. I ENJOYED that moment. I will never forget that moment. But nobody here could see how that was a moment of YIPPIE! a moment of victory.
Yes, Pain and all the rest who TREAT me said it was nice. But they were handling me, not learning from what I said.
I had spent thirty years being instrumental in forming the coalition, down in the Deep South and in the ethnic areas of Northern cities, none of which the Kremlin had any inkling of, that destroyed the Kremlin power.
Pain says he thinks that’s nice. He’s handling me, not learning from me.
Meanwhile, on Planet Earth, you don’t get many chances to finger an Empire that owns half the world. If you can’t YIPEE over that, what will you YIPEE over?
When the world is perfect? I am surrounded by victories that were unimaginable in the 1950s, as I keep saying.
ABSOLUTELY no one else understood WHY I enjoyed that moment so much.
I, alone, know where I am going. I know and celebrate each victory on the way there.
Shari, it hurts me to say so, but you will NEVER know that feeling. I know when I have scored a victory in the REAL fight. I keep winning, and you keep feeling the final victory has not been won.
I keep winning, and you keep waiting for Gabriel’s Trumpet.
You have a courage I admire. You have a courage I am very happy that that I do not NEED.
You will never have a Final Victory. I can teach you why you don’t NEED a Final Victory.
