Does the conscience exist? You know the answer It is a shimmering wave of heat that disappears as you approach A social construct Varying culture to culture Arbitrary without authority A control mechanism for the superstitious Then if there is no conscience, there is no duty? Duty to what? Yourself? Your culture? Your fellow man? I know no such thing as duty It carries no weight or obligation And now it's my turn Why do you ask? Because I'm going to kill you And take your money.
