Now seems to be a time of universal deceit. Metaphors gain validity while facts get discounted. We now celebrate Tea, Coffee and Kool-ade and shun beer in public. Freedom requires us to choose the knots by which we will be bound. Political bribes are now called ‘Campaign Donations’ and corporations (entities created by governmental decree) have been Scotused into person-hood. If the richest 10% truly do own 80% of the money and 90% of the politicians, then, freedom really does mean there’s nothing left to lose. Me And Bobby Magee should become our new national anthem.
