This is the new blog...CONFESSION ZERO


You think you’re victim
of some superfluous screed?
Did some thugs come `n
muddle up your apathy?

Did freedom come `n
commandeer morality
and insult you with words,
broad-shouldered axioms?

Use your weary autonomy
and ask a veteran of war
if your tidy `n dull speech
was worth losing that limb.

Ask them if they lost it
even for those you disagree,
only then might you learn
the meaning of humility.

Your censorship chokes away
all of our precious speech
long before the people type,
before their words can teach.

Jim, A movement’s been afoot
they walk the street in hordes;
they're the free and the brave
armed with automatic keyboards!

Protesting `n trying to stay free.
Using, before they get tossed out,
those insignificant freedoms
you seem so sore about!

I speak a completely futile rant,
for you’ll still choke out liberty.
It's odd how you feel you're safer
wearing the blindfold of tyranny...

"Goebbels was in favor of free speech for views he liked. So was Stalin. If you're in favor of free speech, then you're in favor of freedom of speech precisely for views you despise. Otherwise, you're not in favor of free speech." -Noam Chomsky
