A final word here.
Power proceeds to find force unnecessary and counterproductive.
This turns out to be the end of that great experiment called America; the democratic ideal its philosophy; industrial consumption its means.
Power does not need to force anyone into compliance in “this evening land.”
We march as directed to any number of tunes all played by the same band.
We have and will continue to buy our chains.
We have and will continue to participate in all the mechanisms of control as a matter of course.
We have and will continue to see the good nestled enticingly among all that is corrupt.
We will imagine always that this is freedom.
It is not.
