This is

It's about them. The ones who aren't protecting us, who are working against us, who are helping the monsters, being the monsters. The corporations, the firms, the governments, the churches, the policemen, the armies, the organizations that were supposed to build upon one another to fight back and help us, to do the right thing and aid us in our times of need.  This is about them, the groups that let us down and failed at every duty they were created to succeed at. We are supposed to be able to trust our government to come out with the answers or at least pursue the answers, but that's not what has happened here. Not in this case, not in this lifetime, not ever. People are dying all around us, and the states of the world are not only hindering the efforts of the people trying to survive for their own vile interests, but are occasionally actively aiding the MONSTER in its efforts to destroy the Refugees. It's about the governments, corporations and NGO's who believe that the continuation of their own interests instead of the survival of people. It's about them.

It's about them. The ones who aren't being protected, who are dying all around us, who are being killed because nobody is helping, not even the people who are supposed to help. This isn't just about the individuals, but it is about the individuals. It's about getting them, those who have been tortured, and killed, and hounded and unjustly arrested and embittered, all of them, Victims, justice. These ambivalent government agents, these Perpetrators, have not only allowed the MONSTER to get away time and time again, but they've aided him, whether they are aware of it or not. You know them, if you're reading this, you know who I am speaking of. The corrupt cop, the politician who is just a little too happy to give to that new children's home, the army unit who goes about their destruction just a little too gleefully, the church that washes the blood from their hands before a fundraiser, the government that experiments on the helpless and mad. The Perpetrators are everywhere, they're staining everything, and they need to be brought to justice. It's about them.

This isn't about cowboy cop vigilante tit for tat. These people broke promises and contracts and the law, and that's what needs to be in the spotlight. It's not a mission of vengeance, it's not a vendetta. This is about coldly, calmly and carefully bringing down those who have brought us down. This is about the law, and using the law as a tool, to break the ice around us and free us from lies and hatred and heresy and pain. This is about truth, and bringing to light what is happening and has happened and will happen with cold, hard facts, each case utterly airtight, ready to be brought before a court of law. This is about reconciliation, about allowing those who run back into the society that rejected them, and about forcing those who serve the MONSTER out into his arms, or wherever their foul thoughts take them. This is about the truth, and you have it, whether you know it or not. It's about reconciliation, and you need it, whether you know it or not. It's about justice, and that is needed, and everyone knows it. It's not about revenge.

It's not about me.


  1. You sure about that?

    Used to think the same thing a while back. Then you clench your nostrils closed, take a headlong plunge into the motionless pool of inky blackness and you find yourself grasping onto that keyboard like a silver-coated lifeline to the surface, to freedom, and your epistemology changes dramatically.

    Watch out for yourself - vigilance is evermore a necessity.

  2. Oh, I'm fine with vigilance. Vigilantism not so much. I spent all of my life studying the law, I'm not about to give up on it now.
