Enslavement of the People

Why reclining, interrogating? why myself and all drowsing?
What deepening twilight-scum floating atop of the waters,
Who are they as bats and night-dogs askant in the capitol?
What a filthy Presidentiad! (O South, your torrid suns! O North, your arctic freezings!)
Are those really Congressmen? are those the great Judges? is that the President?
Then I will sleep awhile yet, for I see that these States sleep, for reasons;
(With gathering murk, with muttering thunder and lambent shoots we all duly awake,
South, North, East, West, inland and seaboard, we will surely awake....

To the States or any one of them, or any city of the States,
Resist much, obey little,
Once unquestioning obedience, once fully enslaved,
Once fully enslaved, no nation, state, city of this earth, ever after-ward resumes its liberty.
- Whitman -


As we awaken, we somehow find each other and are drawn together. Yet we can't fully explain why. We just know it's what has to happen. We can no longer ignore our responsibilities as human beings...as real people!

Out of our slumber, we begin to find our voice; we begin to teach each other; we begin to learn from one another. The community of the real people continues to grow. There is no resemblance to the familiar structures of which we are so accustomed. Our communities are undefinable by those who would enslave us. This undefinability; this unstructurelessness; this enlightenment of community; is impossible for the mongers to stop.

The real people are finding one another and sharing their stories. The people are re-writing history...no, actually they are making history!

The sight returns as the blindfolds are removed. The sound of truth resonates within our heads as the earplugs are discarded. Our sense of touch is more real than ever before in our memories. With the re-birth of our lucidity, our obligation to humanity and our world is awakened. It washes over us with such clarity, there is no ignoring it! Freedom is sweet and enslavement can no longer be tolerated! Yes, it's our watch...let's get it right!
