Auden

An excerpt from Auden’s September 1st, 1939 poem:

All I have is a voice
To undo the folded lie,
The romantic lie in the brain
Of the sensual man-in-the-street
And the lie of Authority
Whose buildings grope the sky:
There is no such thing as the State
And no one exists alone;
Hunger allows no choice
To the citizen or the police;
We must love one another or die.

Defenseless under the night
Our world in stupor lies;
Yet, dotted everywhere,
Ironic points of light
Flash out wherever the Just
Exchange their messages:
May I, composed like them
Of Eros and of dust,
Beleaguered by the same
Negation and despair,
Show an affirming flame.

Quote

Here is a cool quote requoted from Convergence Culture…

“Freedom is fostered when the means of communication are dispersed, decentralized, and easily available, as are printing presses or microcomputers.  Central control is more likely when the means of communication are concentrated, monopolized, and scarce, as are great networks.”
