Make People See [REVISED]

Wish I could describe my feelings, the alienation of
reading articles in magazines loved in my youth which
now seem unbearable - and media insisting on forming
opinion, imposing one point of view; my estrangement
on seeing readers force-fed perspectives

today there’s freedom from official creed and religion
in enlightening explanation of the world’s progress as a
magic phenomenon presenting life as a wide-open, self-
made intersubjective creation, of amazing empowering
ideas known because the free internet brought access

to life-changing information that cannot be suppressed
as was the case throughout the ages using censure in the
name of politics, morality and education; all these being
mass-control mechanisms, unorthodox thinking was kept
from spreading, civilizations were subjected, prevented

from growing independent by false assumptions, beliefs
and superstitions; today the cage is open - so it’s beyond
understanding why many people still prefer and enjoy the
pre-digested, prejudiced and enslaving precepts of official
orthodoxy in all its mind-numbing forms; what will it take

to make people see - they are FREE?

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
