When we work a job on the night shift, we feel the fatigue of an upside down sleep schedule; when we train and train and train for an athletic event, we feel fatigue; when we’ve given it all on an all-nighter studying for a test or writing for a deadline, fatigue fills us. Fatigue is a specter we all strive to avoid, but being human, we can’t do that all the time. We don’t even notice the most enervating and debilitation kinds of fatigue even as they are happening. They are insidious and therein lies their danger; we’ve been attacked and don’t care. For what gets to us most at first may seem like good thing, we are not reacting in such a volatile way, we are protesting wrongs, we are not taking stands about anything, important or not. We’ve become mindless, tranquil souls, drifting in the sea of public opinion and not really caring how we feel, because it really doesn’t matter, nothing matters. This terribly dangerous because, not only do we suffer (though we probably don’t recognize that) but everyone around suffers as well. Usually a swift kick wherever will serve to get the juices flowing again, but if not stronger measures are called for. Aren’t they?
