After the Revolution

What shall we keep after the revolution? Lies will go on, yes lies always survive; state sanctioned lies, personal lies, collective lies, secret lies, open lies, lies of omission, lies of admission, lies about yesterday and tomorrow, lies for our own good, lies about how we have overcame. Oxycontin and sedative factories must be kept on a war footing of course. We will condemn, replace, dismiss ban and debunk all the unfit that do not fit. Declare that forgetfulness is natural, safe and should never be treated unless there are signs of recovery. Breadlines will be considered a patriotic and legitimate form of exercise. Who needs toilet paper anyway? Malcontents will to be turned into a much needed glue, in order to hold together our glorious future.
