America Is Damned

America Is Damned

A Poem by Raven Starhawk

Not really a poem...maybe a abstract poem.

"The liberty of parents to direct the upbringing, education, and care of their children is a fundamental right."

Government invasion erodes said right

"Neither the United States nor any state shall infringe this right without demonstrating that its governmental interest as applied to the person is of the highest order and not otherwise served."

The United States is only united under tyranny sown together by ceaseless corruption

"This article shall not be construed to apply to a parental action or decision that would end life."

Passionate desire to seize nations is a president's true agenda

"No treaty may be adopted nor shall any source of international law be employed to supersede, modify, interpret, or apply to the rights guaranteed by this article."

There is no free world as long as there are politics

Words written that certainly hold much truth. You interpreted it quite good. This world has been ravished and destroyed by our governments agenda. Great feelings here Raven.

could it be that we are just citizens with rights created to control our thoughts, our expressions, and or every part of what we hope is freedom? I wonder what it is like everywhere else...nice work on this piece...

Amen! It's hard to trust those with so much power especially when they don't know how to properly use it to benefit their country!
