The Righteous Are Liars:

I find it funny, at times,
In this reality, of mine.

When the heroes fall and demons rise.
In the fight for freedom, filled with lies.

But such is the nature of the templar divine.
With righteous chains, they'll keep us in line.
Afraid to face the true demon he fears.
He'll punishes the public, for their rightful jeers.

And thus ends the "hero's" tale...

-Chen Yuan Wen, 3rd November 2013
In the fight for freedom, many people want to demonstrate that they will not be controlled. That they wish to be free of alll constraints and so they declare their action against the forces of authority.

Yet when an individual, one who believes in the present authority, denounces these rebels as disturbers of the peace. The rebels choose to strike them down, without mercy or remorse.

How does that make them any different from the authority which they seek to depose? They are not fighting for freedom, they are simply fighting for the right of 'leadership'.

But if you ask me, what the people want the most is simply to be left in peace.

That is not to say that it will be a life without conflict, nor a life that is free of weapons and bloodshed. But instead, it will be one without interference, without being poked and prodded by some grand authority seeking to affirm the size of its imaginary genitals.

In my opinion, true leaders will always lead by example and these will forever exist. Yet it is the cowards, the scheming rats, that choose instead to lead by speech.

Ahem, in any case, apologies for the rant. I will post a journal update soon (or rather the co-captain will post one on my behalf as I am still away on training) but I will tell you all soon about how my life is coming along.

Remember everyone, a pirate will always be free.

Chen you've written couplets of slanted rhymes like Emily Dickenson did so that's really traditional form. But 't is good nonetheless.

Haha, probably because I didn't actually use the form, as you know I have no actual art training so I was just doing what sounded good. Thanks for always looking out for me man ^^

It should either be "He'll punish .." or "He punishes ..." can't combine both .... :S

*Sweeps a majestic bow, the bells on the hat jingling merrily.  The winter motley gleams faintly in the fading light of the castle courtyard*

That was a majestic piece.
I enjoyed the rant and the ideas of peace.
Yet let me say that a piece
of peace
Will forever elude mankind because of rats.
These fat rats.  

Said rats are politicians.

But seriously.  I did enjoy the piece, it was good.  I find it contrasts nicely with "Without the Individual".  They both present ideas that are revolutionary to some current thoughts.  It's good that someone is writing them down.

Order out of chaos. The creed of the illuminati.

The reason as to why anarchy is liberation is because of these words:

"If you are a god, and the delusion becomes reality,
what about the noids that you get?
The despotic society?
The destructive sanctions?
The sensual world?
Or..."

The concept of authority itself was originally created by the archons in order to create a world where the thesis and anti-thesis
constantly wage war -a season unending- so that they can literally feed off of our pain and misery.

Once freed from the delusion, we shall be perfect beings again.
