Leo mentioned that never had things been so bad:
the dumbing down of the common man
though i could see his point
i had to argue:
the common man has never been "intelligent"
he eats and dies.
he fucks and laughs.
dances. drinks. sorrows.
the great revolution was supposed to bring about a time when all had the luxury to do more than work
but i don't know if the "common man" ever did.
he says they did
he said they were coming to a point where they all were becoming self aware
until the greater will (what would that be, dear Father?
Christ? the Illuminati? the Politick?)
deemed it counter-profitable to have the common people conscious
thus created a play land for their freedoms
to steer their desires back into stupidity
where once they were all made to think themselves "Slaves" with all the "work" that "Needed" to be done
they were then fooled into believing themselves Free
but the label stays
and now they are all driven to be mindless consumers
so he said
so he said
and i suppose they are still slaves
like i've always said
which is a greater tragedy than the starving days of yore
when they suffered
when they lived
what do they do now?
