Distances (3)

The distance that separates our existence from conflicts and suffering runs deeper than alienation. In negating the reality that power strives to deny, the masses that lack a revolutionary fervour are intimidated by political power and enthralled with the honour of voting. The puppets that govern insist that elections and diplomacy are the only avenues that offer sustainable change.

The distance between perceived comfort and conflict lessen when people participating in the parody of elections realise that their contribution to electing a government has served to manacle them to a different kind of oppression - that of having betrayed their freedom to elect a handful of puppets masquerading as leaders.
