I swear, every time I open my mouth, I'm the only one hearing the words. Is what I'm saying so complicated that even the simplest minds can't
understand? I know for damn certain I don't know everything there is to know about anything, but the difference between myself and most the people
around me, is wanting to know.
I get god damn tired of ignorance. I am filled to the brim of ability to tolerate these "people". You are the reason this world is turning to #! You
are the reason wars are being fought for elusive reasons, you are the reason our children will never have the freedoms we willingly barter with.
It isn't as simple as knowing what is changing, or what to do to stop it or inhibit it. It's complicated really. There were once little people whose
voices rang through the airs of liberty and justice, they died for their beliefs. Here, where there is one, in other countries there are thousands
unwilling to forgive those who would strip them of the sovereignty, and unwilling to forget the foundations of their countries. In these places, it is
seldom that one person die in lieu of an entire nation forgetting what it was they stood and fought for. In these countries, even the ones less privy
to their constitutional parameters, stand and shed blood to ensure their integrity be upheld.
Here, you #ing cowards allow yourselves to forget. You allow the mediocrity of a mundane, poisonous mentality to govern your stupidity. If I were to
stand proudly and fight for your rights, how many of you would stand with me? If I were to tell you that the laws your forefathers enacted are being
dissolved rapidly, how many of you would cringe rather than shout blasphemy? If I were to ask you to care, how many of you would respond, " I do"?
We are a nation built on the backs of slave labor. A nation ushered in boats afloat in the blood of natives. We are a nation created on distorted
histories, generic agendas and promises as empty as the current mindset. We forget that the choices we make today, create the reality of tomorrow. We
forget that our lack of compassion for the rest of the world does in fact create a void in the fabric of human existence. We walk tall, proud, certain
that we are doing something right, something that ensures a sound future, but how many of you can reflect on the past?
Those of us who have forgotten the mistakes of the past, are destined to repeat them. I am cynical because my heart wallows in grief created by the
burden of bearing our ignorance. I am cynical because I've opened my eyes to 24 years of blatant misinterpretation. I am cynical because I am one
man, who is afraid to stand up in front of the mob of witch hunters, and I am cynical because my love for life is overshadowed by my hate for you.
What will it take for us to care together? Will we ever find what we've lost? I say, "If they give us everything, we'll ask for nothing." I am
ashamed to call myself your brother. I am ashamed that my words create anxiety and discomfort. I am ashamed that we are afraid to take back what we
are blindly, willingly giving away. I am ashamed to look at my daughters eyes, full of hope and love, and to know that the adults, the people shaping
her world, are failing.
When your eyes are open, and you see the bleak reality you've denied, you will know the meaning of your Bible, your Koran, your faith. You will know
that while you were certain that your faith in co-dependency would save you from purgatory, your lack of faith in self is where you made your first
You are the beginning, the end, the alpha and the omega!
