“The Mascots of Rage” / Memorable Fancies #1268

[Greek gods may exhibit “faults or aberrations of mind such as Atë (delusion and folly) or Lyssa (rage, frenzy).”– Jean-Pierre Vernant]

     There is a god for each of our faults. When we are Angry, for instance, we say “That is not me; that is Anger speaking.” And when we desert a friend in need, we say “That is not me, that is Betrayal.”

     We worship these gods: they’ve brought us peace of mind by taking on our sins.
