“At no time have governments been moralists. They never imprisoned people and executed them for having done something. they imprisoned and executed them to keep them from doing something.” Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
The Silenced Are Loud Everywhere the silenced call out at great cost about the emperor's new clothes, for the price of a beating, rape, imprisonment, financial ruin or death they invest openly in criticising empty platitudes, plastic ideals, the lies of ego, the lust for power, the rabid desire for authority over the tides and times of history's march without a care for anyone or anything in this world, everywhere the silenced are loud for humanity.
