The Scent of Nostalgia (9)
If power admonishes the people who refer to history, the masses should stage an intellectual revolt. A way of mellowing the cry against injustice is by appeasing the people with words that are less than an apology and a travesty of the roots of justice. Power expects society to conform to its rules and assume the identity of the defeated. If society rises above the mendacity of contemporary democracy and its assumption that rights are equivalent to freedom, it might be time to unite the revolutionary singer to his audience once again.
