In the context of the current political and economic situation, I feel the urge to resurrect a piece that I wrote during the course of last year. It deals with the themes of change, and how the interests of the few are served by alterations in the lives of the masses. Politicians use weasel words and rhetoric to convince the cooperative to follow the line, and peer group pressure to silence dissent. In the pursuit of this ‘live now, pay later’ philosophy, we lose our traditions, our livelihoods, our humanity and ultimately our souls.

Maybe I should warn you that it might not be what you are expecting..
