To really understand these processes requires more than one nation can do AKA Day Twenty-Four

We surround ourselves with
Luxury, of a sort. Not quite
Gold leaf and polished stone, but
Indulgences which distract us and
Numb us to the manipulations to which
We are subjected. Even when
We see pain inflicted
We are only momentarily
Outraged before another
Analgesic is delivered and
We gulp it down with abandon.
Though we distrust our leaders
We assume they are capable of
Protecting and preserving the
Illusion we have of ourselves
Of keeping us safe and pretending
Freedom is more tan just
A word and that we have not lost. But the
Lie may be too elaborate, the
Delusion too grand, the
Fiction may be too much for
Mere humans to maintain.
