OBSERVATION (binary choices)

Riffraff are those with only two operational categories: pleasure and pain. This is why, as everyone knows at the gut level, being forced into making a binary choice is humiliating. The only escape from a binary choice is to go meta. That is why, to avoid humiliation, you must sooner or later become adept at going meta. The ultimate goad for going meta is, of course, a binary choice with a false presupposition, the classic being, “How you stopped beating your wife?”
