Has the entirety of the 19th century been a ruse?
Have we already convinced our own populace of its insignificance in history?
Marshaling their forces are the powers that be, the dregs of society, who sit atop their golden palisades, directing the people. They are holding down the piecemeal resistances that have begun to spring forth into the river and be the tide.
But it is not enough. We must think about our roles in this world, how we are to our neighbors.
We must toss this absurd notion that we must look out for ourselves, and only ourselves. Have we not progressed as a race, as lowly as we are in the cosmos, to begin this process.
This is a call to action. Not a call for revolution of the body, or the systems in place that keep us down, but for a revolution of the mind. We must think, we must act upon the wellbeing of our species. Can we not fight this epidemic of pride, and solidarity by forcing civilization to think new?
Can we not rise to the occasion?
I for one say yes. I shall rise.
The people are worthy comrades, prove it so.
