Yes, seems like once upon a time.

But it isn’t. And I’d like to remember that.

Enable people to do, as well.

And arose against their own government.

And restored oligarchs to human species.

It gives me hope

Of a post-Democratic future

With non-iconic leaders

And wealth neither hoarded nor gamed.

When too big is disallowed.

Unless it’s humanity.
