When challenged by peaceful assembly, they crush it so nimbly.
They censor the coverage by press with violence and arrest.
They search without cause, and aggregate our thoughts.
Without trial they detain; inflict cruel and unusual pain.
They deny the right to civil damages for all corporate ravages.
They grab private property; a pipelines for plutocracy.
Their political theater is propaganda to distract us,
for, when all political power in a very few hands,
and the economy runs at their very command,
You have what communism always was in practice!

- "Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness of the people; and not for the profit, honor, or private interest of any one man, family, or class of men: Therefore the people alone have an incontestible unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government; and to reform, alter, or totally change the same, when their protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness require it." -- Constitution of Massachusettes (1780)
