We have no fate except what we make for ourselves.

Second Letter to America

Wake up, America! Arise from your sleep of ignorance, of naivete, of selfishness. Realize that this once great nation has, in fact, been churned into a frothy mix of lies, blood, deceit, tears, deprecation, and chaos - and not only at the hands of the fascist Bush Administration.
Our collective failure to stand up and rally against the crimes and horrors unleashed by the federal dictatorship has only exacerbated our collective suffering. Whether it be in the federal dictatorship's allowance of and/or participation in the September 11 slaughter and the partial annihilation of New Orleans; or whether it be in its untenable and atrocious wars of invasion and occupation with the singular goal of personal and financial gain via oil; or whether it be the rapacious way it treats the environment; or whether it be the diffuse manners in which it oppresses and obliterates life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, know this: WE, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, NEVER HAD TO TOLERATE ANY OF THESE AND COUNTLESS OTHER ASSAULTS.
We have had and been given ample opportunities to alleviate our shared abuse. We have decided, as a nation and as a collective people, to disregard these warnings, these omens. As a result, the United States is on a precipice...and at a crossroads. Although the breaking point was shattered long ago, we still have the ability to save not only ourselves and our country, but also the very idea and wondrous reality that is America.
So it is at these crossroads that we must choose the correct path to take. Are we continue permitting our servicemen and servicewomen to be used as pawns in the federal dictatorship's imperialist plans? Are we to continue watching our society rot and wither like a diseased organism with dispassion and insouciance? Are we to continue absorbing the propaganda spewed forth from the Blood Red (er, White) House and the mainstream media? Are we to continue wrapping ourselves in personal comforts and luxuries so as to trick our minds into thinking things aren't so bad? Or do we come together as one united populace, an entity that will crush the menace threatening our survival? Will we stand as a whole to declare the end of the mutilation of the American fabric - a fabric woven from the looms of real patriotism, freedom, charity, and true justice?
The power to govern is justly derived from the people. Therefore, I beseech you, America, to open your eyes, take a look around, and ask yourself these final questions:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. --That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. —Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain [George III] is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world. "
