The language of triumph

February 7, 2016

Why is the language of victory and achievement so aggressive? One constantly hears phrases like, “I’m going to kill it!” “I’, going to smash it!” I don’t understand the lack of dignity, the lack of emotional awareness. Can’t people go about seeking their triumphs in a more dignified, more considered manner? Why do people need to convince themselves, need to psyche themselves up just to sing a note, kick a ball, run a race. It isn’t as if they are seeking to emulate true winners, because the real warrior, the real champions go about their business in a quietly under-stated way. If we went about smashing and killing we would very quickly realise that the language of aggression seeps through the ceiling of consciousness like dirty water through a ceiling, and imbeds itself in the bedrock of our everyday thought.
