The promise of freedom bade them take to the sea, hungry in the knowledge a new land lay in wait, prosperous beyond recognition.
Rebellion lay not in the hearts of the men and women swept towards the new world. No, under a single flag did they sail, empirical expansion their hearts desire.
People of the land they met, whist tearing the ground asunder in rapid expansion. A people true to the land.
True or not, the savages stood in the way of progress. They too were torn asunder, ripped from their land, divvied like spoils, and sent out of sight to rot amongst the civilized.
The powers that would be kings saw the great land before them and they did cry out in joy. Their minds twirling with thoughts of currency and power.
They would call it freedom and the people would believe. They would shout from every mountain top, FREEDOM! Let it ring through the ages. Let no one doubt the purity of these United States of America!
Rights would be determined by a political body and handed to the people in the form of a bill, as if a loan of will, to be paid in full through time and tyranny. In the same moment, mint, coin, and currency were born anew...Made In America.
On the backs of a people sold by their own nation would this country be built. A class born without right and a future unknown only to them.
The church would find a new god, green and wholesome in power. Children would find work, brethren akin to slaves.
Tears shed along the Trail would mark our betrayal to freedom. Lies sown deeply into the fabric of a nation sold freedom in exchange for compliance.
Words and walls would turn blind eyes to the care taken to hide our nation's hypocrisy. Walls built by slaves, words built by masters.
The land would spew forth riches and would subsequently be joined in Union with the people of a great nation. Slaves to harvest, masters to spend.
Those who stood upon the land and gazed out over the conquerors in fear would bow to the same, selling land for a cage.
A party of the republic would be formed. They would fight to rid the country of slaves, and to monetize their poverty upon doing so. All in the name of a wage quantified by a minimum with no maximum.
A nation would split and humanity would question their very existence. Oddly enough, no one would see the connection between the two. An origin of species and a selection so very natural.
Slaves would be sold into freedom and the lower class would be born, slaves now to the dollar and the hatred of a people unwilling to accept a .01% difference in DNA.
A Nobel man whose name would become synonymous with ingenuity and invention patents dynamite. A creation made to rob the Earth from herself in the pursuit of riches.
A savage land would continue to be tamed as her people rebel. Women would find solidarity while the Irish discovered the noose.
Let there be light! Let there be the slow decline of a people's relationship with the ground upon which they walk, the ground which gives them life.
Governments would gain ground while collecting the debt owed according to the bill of rights. People would cry out at the circumstance, ignorant to its beginning.
A service in the name of civility would be established. When once great men would talk to the people, a new intermediary would be chosen to digest this talk and spew it forth upon the people, as mother bird to chick.
An Act of Dawes would put the power to divide a savage land amongst its rightful owners under the guise of fairness to the conquerors. Expansion and greed would quickly overcome humanity in the name of freedom for all, save those in the way.
A lack of faith, a loss of trust, an act carried out by a government preventing one cat from becoming too fat. The Sherman Act would proclaim freedom from monopoly, only to secure a WAL around a free MARkeT.
Those slaves who would be free are still kept from eating at the tables of their masters, kept separate and never equal. The government extolls the beauty of a country while it rots from the top down, barreling into a new century.
