“INTELLECTUAL WASTELAND” by JTK.CA

“INTELLECTUAL WASTELAND” by http://JTK.CA

Burning witches.
Burning books.
Burning opponents
For their looks,
Or so we say,
Since we won’t play
With divergent ideas
That come our way.

Burning forests
Since we hate trees
For culturally appropriating our soil.
Soon we find ourselves
In an intellectual wasteland —
A wasteland of our own creation,
Created through destruction
Of everything unpopular
Until nothing is left
But the anarchy of one view —
The view of the mob mentality.

Forward we march
Into our glorious future
With our blinders on —
While reality closes in on us like an army
Without our knowledge,
Since we’ve deliberately blinded our own peripheral vision.

Freedom of speech
Was designed to protect unpopular speech,
Since popular speech does not need protection.
