::][the state of democracy][::

Do you hear it?

The sounds of a restless society.

A society consumed by its own cognative dissonance,

yet without clear directives.  

 

The chatter of a nation,

that has realized –

they’ve been stripped of a true democracy.

 

Where do we go, next?

As a people?

As a nation?

 

The truth is – I do not know.

 

But what I do know,

is this country,

no longer functions —

 

by the values,

on which it was founded.

 

That much, is clear.

 

I enjoy the concept of a democratic America as much as you do,

so I simply want you to stop and ask yourself, what can I do,

to improve the quality of life for those around me, and myself?

 

Where can I be a little more tolerant, understanding, and accepting in my life?

and finally – Where can I find those parts of myself that I don’t like,

and fix them, rather than taking ones own feelings of shortcoming – out on others?  

 

Just some food for thought…

the smokescreen of disconnection –

have you ever noticed,

and seen through the smokescreen?

 

have you also wondered,

why nobody seems to care or notice anymore?

 

the great national seance of television and “marketed culture,”

have fractalized society into “lifestyles,” and “statuses,”

and perpetuated the falsity of “difference.”

 

Reunite with your brothers, sisters, mothers, brothers, aunts, uncles, neighbors,

and others.  

 

We’re all in this together.
