    I wrote this poem to encourage independent thinking. Mainstream media pushes fear and avoids delving deeper into major issues.

    We deserve the truth, and we owe it to ourselves to take the time to find it.

    Censorship and propaganda are driving us further away from Freedom, Free Speech, Peace, Independence...It doesn't just stop at Covid-19.

    "Parrhesia" is a poem about governments and media manipulating us for profit.

    It is also about how fear is used to control the unaware, and how our emotions blind us from the reality that is right in front of us.

    Patterns throughout history depict authorities controlling the way information is (or isn't) delivered to different groups in order to get what they want from them: Book burning, censored and selective education, language barriers, emotional manipulation, financial incentives...


    We can't point the finger at one evil genius behind a curtain... but we can see millions (if not billions) of misinformed people with good intentions falling victim to a broken system.

    We all want what is best for ourselves, our families and loved ones, and yet we do not take the time to find the truth.

    The hypocrisy and contradictions in the way governments are dealing with the coronavirus (sars cov 2, "pandemic") should be enough to raise some red flags.


    Take the time to read the original poem at the end of the video.

    - PARRHESIA -
    It's been like this forever.
    This isn't a change of weather.
    Freedoms hanging by a thread here
    While we binge Netflix and TikTok...

    Now I'm not here to judge you
    I know we're all scared and tired
    And we've been so hardwired
    Media fueled the wrong fires.

    We're depressed, we’re dying
    While billionaires are crying
    Of laughter.
    While we're just running faster
    Away from reality.
    Well... Why wouldn't we?
    They've got guns and we've got family.
    This isn't conspiracy-
    Theories have been brought to light
    Throughout history.
    We're in a cave thinking we're free.
    Won't go to the light ‘cause it's easier not to see.

    Can we go back to dictionaries?
    When definitions were clear?
    We don't read, we just fear.
    Words manipulated we didn't even know existed.
    Let teachers fix it
    So parents can be distant.
    Mess with child development.
    “Just leave it to the government”
    Let them draw our paths
    ‘Cause we gave them the pencil.

    We can erase this if we face it.
    Us against the faces
    That convince us drugs
    Will solve our problems
    While they profit from our consumption.

    Stop just listening to stars and politicians
    And start using intuition
    Discerning fact from fiction...
    Stop paying into our addiction of
    Listening to a system
    That's turning us to victims
    Of our lack of wisdom.

    If you don't see it now
    It’s okay to be confused
    But don't throw rocks at those who do.
    Take a step back and you'll see who
    Is piloting this ruse.
    A bunch of individuals
    Profiting from your residuals
    Putting our money into propaganda and riot police
    Instead of into our failing healthcare system.
    They've always done this.
    Saying they need our cash to fix the roads
    While they ride private jets and fancy boats.
    No wonder we can't stay afloat...

    We're right where they want us
    Distanced and thoughtless
    Avoiding each other
    So we can't discuss what's wrong with this picture.
    Instead we write our feelings
    Caps lock on with words vomiting
    Out of our thumbs
    Without knowledge of real arguing.

    Why can't ideas be shared
    Without ruining friendships and careers?
    Just 'cause someone got offended?
    Never learned emotional intelligence?
    Your feelings have no relevance
    In the crusade for truth!

    If they gave any credit to the people
    We wouldn't have censored information.
    We just see one side on every station
    Pushing separation amongst each other
    So we're too busy judging mothers
    Who wonder why their kids are being smothered
    Masks in gym class, call out the other
    When he pulls down his mask.
    How do they even learn in class?

    Ads selling problems not solutions.
    Our institutions
    Told us following was the solution.
    'Cause if you think for yourself
    "You'll go nowhere with an F."
    But I can tell you the people who
    Came out independent
    Were the ones who were observant.
    I had to unlearn to become present,
    And yeah, I’m still working on it
    But I make choices for myself.

    This isn't about health.
    If it were they'd tell us:
    "Get your vitamins"
    "Go for walks whenever you can"
    “Do sports and eat well”
    "Have interactions, real human connections"
    “Raise your kids with healthy immune systems.”
    Instead they punish insurrections
    That fight for freedom from the infectious
    Disease that is control.

    They swallow us whole.
    Keep us indoors
    Special treatment for big-box stores
    Give us fines when we're unsure
    What martial law is in place today.
    Throw us cheques to stay
    On our good side
    Keep us lost and afraid
    Cause we can’t afford
    A rising mortgage or rent 'cause we lost our pay.

    It was never gonna be just a few days.
