Overlords

by Regis Boff

Americans want to be taken care of but not to the extent that they lose sight of the joy of caring for themselves. Neither of our parties have the crucible internally to accomplish this although both say and perhaps believe they do. The result is a permanent underclass and a permanent set of overlords that preside over them. Every election we vote for the side we find ourselves stationed to, thereby oddly and sadly making certain we stay where we are.
