Skim the scum


Image of Skim the scum

They say the cream rises to the top. But 'they' are the ones who think inequality is the natural result of how hard - or not - someone works. The kind of people who actively deny privilege and are happy to overlook discrimination, history and, well, reality.

But anyone who does any fermenting or broth making knows that the other thing that rises to the top is the scum. This is the nasty stuff food purges that needs to be eliminated through a process of continuous skimming. Skim the scum, rinse, repeat as necessary. To me, this feels like the perfect metaphor for survival in the grim times we are living.
