Freedom of Information Acts

Because it is
not yet the day

that every citizen of Earth
is permanently hooked up telepathically

to the One World
Liberal Reality Projector (TM)

that turns the insides of our eyelids
into always-on cameras
covering every possible angle
of the globe

and wordlessly conveying its importance
to our consciences and souls

we have people
who daily
put their lives at risk

in the name of information.
