let them ring!

Censorship becomes a fatal attraction to governments
Redacted files,false flag operations,propaganda,denial,scandals-
all reveal The Emperor Has No Clothes.When writers expose-or journalists
via Wikileaks or via Bradley Manning's release-reaction becomes reactionary.
Iran bans Al-Jazeera broadcasts,Syria censors the Internet and bans foreign journalists
Dictators torture and kill dissidents,poets,writers,journalists.Renaissance stillborn.
Survivors toe party lines of face prison or execution in China.
Buddhists burn themselves in protest in Tibet.
The loss of public imagination means more than genocide
It means we cannot dream alternatives-when our dreamers are being exterminated
Amnesty International saves some via letter writing petitions
More await execution-until you realize-this is not a prayer
This is a petition for your action!
