What is the purpose of FREE SPEECH if we are afraid to use it?
What is the point of having rights that we don’t use? Art has been raped under the idea that we need to sell and profit, instead of challenge and inspire the person consuming the product. Our schools are more like dysfunctional factories then sanctuaries for critical thinking and intellectual development. We value conformity and comfort, not heart and uniqueness.
THEY have the wealth: the oil companies, the media, the bullshit music that they play on trashy commercial radio, the abortion that is the education system, and the catastrophe that is the health care system. The notion of upward mobility for people like me and the fairy-tale once known as the "American Dream" is, and always was, a lie.
