Saw this posted on Facebook with the caption “Merica’”. Sooo if by doing all these things we are “owned” and in fact slaves… Does that mean if you were actually “free” that you wouldn’t choose to do any of these things? B/c if so, good luck being a functioning member of ANY society

One of the reasons that I wanted to study literature was because it exposed everything. Writers looked for secrets that had never been mined. Every writer has to invent their own magical language in order to describe the indescribable. They might seem to be writing in French, or English, or Spanish, but really they were writing in the language of butterflies, crows, and hanged men.
