Too Long; Who Will Read:
We sit in a metaphorical theater
compelled by circumstance and the will of our "betters" to watch the sh*tshow they perform.
There are exits from the pit, lit with the fading candlelight of past ideals.
Most of those are "False Gates":
Liberalism
alcoholism
'Leftism'
Leninism
Conservatism
Fascism
multifarious Religions and other addictions of various kinds.
The true exit lies within
and among us;
but who believes we can turn from the squalid play that is meant to distract us?
Who believes that we can educate ourselves,
discuss our ideas and differences,
reach some consensus about the future?
If we did, could we organize and collectively bring down the walls that surround and imprison us?
Could we turn from the Spectacle and live in the world again, authentically?
Could we drive the 1% from power, absorb them and become them,
and live our Daily Lives as free people,
encumbered only by our assembled and creative Will?
Is there any hope of this?

As long as I can still say it,
and imagine it,
there is a sliver of hope.

BUT every person who exits by a false gate comes back to the theater sooner or later
diminishing that sliver of hope by a bit.
I read the work of thoughtful, knowledgable people and
then I express my opinions and write my novels and stories;
and I hope.

A Fool's hope, perhaps, but it is still there.
