"Swift describes them as being filthy and with unpleasant habits,
resembling human beings far too closely for the liking of protagonist Lemuel Gulliver, who finds the calm and rational society of intelligent horses, the Houyhnhnms, far preferable. The Yahoos are primitive creatures obsessed with 'pretty stones' they find by digging in mud, thus representing the
distasteful materialism and ignorant elitism Swift encountered in
Britain. Hence the term "yahoo" has come to mean "a crude, brutish or
obscenely coarse person".
Indeed: there is a filthy mentality according to which people are an obstacle, rather than an opportunity and a help. Instead of teaming up, yahoos make your life miserable and they remain immerse in mediocrity. Hélas!
I am not going to waste my time with people who are unable to understand this very piece, since they don't even know English, and who have a vital horizon as limited as their tiny office, which they rarely abandon. Yahoos tend to become fat toads.
"I compare life to a party, and when it's over, its over. I
didn't feel I needed children, either. People feel they need children
because they're leaving something behind. I don't need to leave anything
behind. The only thing that concerns me is the now."
Regarding art, plagiarism and coypright issues, I recently heard somebody using a stupid argument: how come is Andy Warhol not in jail? He was trying to defend his own copyright abuse arguing that it was art.
But there is a huge difference between Warhol and him, between the 1962 and 2012, etcetera. Directors at Campbells felt honored when they learned about the Tomato Soup series, and the Product Marketing Manager sent him in 1964 this letter.
