"Taking himself seriously, so you don't have to."

Emperors’ Invisible Gates

Systemic problems require change to systems. If our so-called “leaders” cannot or will not alter them from the top-down, they must be replaced. We are on the cusp of two possible futures, with a thousand gradients between heaven or hell, here on earth.

On the precipice of a great fall or a slight climb,

primed by enshrined obsolete capitalistic desires,

instinctual violent tendencies,

driving toward disaccord;

opposed by communal love, communication, and mutual exchange,

encaged by emperors’ invisible gates,

derided by court jesting philistines as idealistic naivete,

encouraging knee-jerk reactionaries,

dividing pens into sub-camps,

showering gladitorial combatants Roman denarius for excessive violence,

riling screaming spectating crowds,

momentarily happy lying behind walls of safe-and-sound.

With every round, the crowd thins.

And finally, no one wins.

  1. I like to get my inspiration from really meaningful phrases said by truly great people like “He who is unable to live in society, or who has no need because he is sufficient for himself, must be either a beast or a god”, do you know where I can find thematic compiltaions of those?

  2. Hello. And Bye.
