Acknowledging The State
I am the cleverest of ruses. You swear allegiance to me. You die for me. I am fabrication. I am artificial boundary. I am birthed in paper. I trade IOU’s. I saddle you with debt.
I am democracy. I transfer private debt unto the public. I am in partnership with private bankers.
I write histories. I censor. I am Empire. I make reality.
I am all these things and you honor me.
I come from another place, a great swarming energy. I am Creator. Without me, you have nothing, are nothing.
I am dictator. I oppose democracy. I am sovereign. I make reality. Dare not challenge me. I am in private partnership with bankers.
I live in the swarming energy. I will rule all. I am godless. I am without equal.
We live in one another. We are the swarming that becomes all things.
~ Stephen J. Bergstrom
