|yes yes...i believe there is a war on the collective psyche..the media is ignorant and the people believe what they are fed...as people awaken they will begin to question alternate perspectives
love the word usage and determination of spirit here

|Government by representation always gives us someone or a few to point our fingers at when things don't go as we wish they would, but mass rule would, not only be worse, but unfortunately has failed everytime it has been attempted throughout history. It would be nice to believe that people care about others as they do themselves but that is a very rare find no matter who is sitting at the top of the food chain. Enlightenment will come, I pray it does not come too late. Exceptional writing, Robert!

|It's always only a few that's growing. Democracy makes for the better form of government, which is the many rule because man is not yet noble enough for a few to govern many without the tyrant prevailing. Nevertheless, the many rarely have the higher vision in view. That's gonna take a while. Intriguing penning, Jude.|

|Your verses, Robert, except for one, use words of discord and tumultuousness with the precision of visions dreamed, and deemed unacceptable. This verse is the pivot,
"Searching for truth
In the neurons of thought and action
In an assemblage of invisible poets"
the end line, the mantra, the hope of tomorrows' existence. Powerful summarizing with the acid sting of Now's reality.

|Powerful and prophetic! You are a master of mood, ditto on KB's comments about the tone and diction. I have read this poem several times, and I see it scrolled down a screen as a preface to a film. I can even hear the "music" in the background. For all its darkness, and the world is dark at this moment, you offer us hope at the end...|

|The world is surrounded with devastation
Into the skin of evolution
And one has to wonder who and what will survive.
|Reviewed by Joseph* OneLight*®
This poem causes our minds to focus
on the reality of the world around us.
There are many with eyes that do not see
and poet's like you help to give them sight.
In this, there is hope for a better tomorrow.

|Hey you don't need me Jude. You are brilliant all on your own. Jokes aside, doing a collab with you was the most wonderful experience. I posted the result in my den. 'Silent Horizon'
This is such a valid statement about our society and current affairs. I must admit that I just read Kate Burnside's comments (I don't usually read the comments of others first) and am as always amazed at her incredible insight and eloquence. She is some lady isn't she?
Thanks again talented poet.

|Echoing Carolyn here, I truly hope that there will be a rising groundswell of the increasing few who have the "wise after the event" words that are to be spoken prophetically, now, before they happen, in the way that you always do. Those who are truly wise, perhaps, need to commit to learning from histories' sorry cyles of boom and bust, both civil and financial. Don't think society has ever cottoned on to the fact that, sooner or later, decadence ALWAYS destroys those civilisations that come to depend on it - from outside and within. Sorry, must be the word "didactic" in the title has set me off! The tone and diction are great here for setting up your proposition: it fuels the paranoia and is suitably "wirey" and "techno"-feeling. This poem describes well how it feels for woolly little blobs like me to feel out of our skins and vulnerable in an increasingly hard-nosed and hard-drive world. And it's like a ricocheting gunshot warning. Gives me the feeling of staring, alien and hopeless, at a load of disconnected and "blown" wire-circuitry that I haven't a clue how to fix: mind-bending!! TY Kate xx|
