My Raison D'être
Having lived in many places and experienced many things, I know now that human society yearns for far more than the meagre existence our corporatocracy has to offer and is far more complex than the propaganda machines would have us believe. There remains vast reservoirs of morality concealed under years of political decadence and economic decay and, I believe if we could only tap into them, there's no telling what we might achieve. All there is left for me to do is prepare for the inevitable uprise, for there is nothing left to lose and I was born ready for revolution!

You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.
