Let's just eliminate all the bullshit, shall we?

The Illusion of Security


We are trained well.
We either self-destruct, seek our fellows' demise,
or sit silently while we watch it all go down.
"Children are meant to be seen, not heard."
This is what 'good' citizens are expected to do, as well.

In case we are completely broken at home,
there is always the chastising, shaming embrace of religion.
It even had the singular benefit of creating people who 
maintain their own discipline and control. 
(So less taxing that way!)

Government, schools, jobs help polish off the task.
Marriage, for the majority, also steals your soul of independence 
and freedom. Give up. Compromise. Accept defeat.
(You can never learn those lessons well enough.)
