Administering a Form of Justice (47)
The inviolable declaration of human rights resented a universal interpretation. It desecrated its terminology in favour of the tyrant and mellowed the outrage of wasted veins into the vocabulary of the helpless. The substitute for freedom was enslaved within its own necessity of survival, assuring its reign by advocating anomalies. Missiles were portrayed as special agents of serenity, blood was an inevitable shade of worthless red. On the yellow land, constitutions of neutrality were gently lacerated, allowing instruments of torture to display their insignificant worth to a population which had travelled in a realm reeking of worse prejudice than alienation.
