The Theft of Memory

In a malfunctioning democracy, people are inundated with the language of progress, continuity and radical change. The nation watches the parody of rule congregate to sustain the definition of democratic elections.

When the definition of democracy becomes a routine exercise, memories dim and slither into pits to mingle with silent intonations. With the waning of history, people discover themselves within a new identity that is too shallow to harbour anything but the stilted present seconds that evaporate with time.
