Moving Backwards

Inspired by Sadje’s What do you see #180

book burning
book banning

there is no difference


there is no difference


there is no difference

where is the utopia for all
not just the paradise for the few
an egregious display of the hunger games 2.0

the powerful watch
as the will of so many is ignored
or shushed into silence

ill-gotten dominance rules
over those seeking comfort
in a world already hard enough

why have we not learned anything from history

Β β€œLet not anyone pacify his conscience by the delusion that he can do no harm if he takes no part, and forms no opinion. Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing. He is not a good man who, without a protest, allows wrong to be committed in his name, and with the means which he helps to supply, because he will not trouble himself to use his mind on the subject.” John Stuart Mill
