The Government: An Equal-Opportunity Tyrant

"The redress of grievances. Who gets heard these days? That’s what needs to be addressed. The government writes on the blackboard, “I will not defy the government no matter what they do” and tells everyone to write that 500 times. And everyone does.

So when one group or the other is getting a whiff of batons and tear gas, the other side cheers. Right, here’s your Free Speech Zone. You can use it for an hour. After that, you need to shut up and go home. You had your freedom.

And how many realize that word is but the hollow shell of what it once was. Like the discarded husk of a cicada you find in the yard one day, reminding you it was summer months ago."
