Liberty’s terminal chances

Liberty’s terminal chances

All parties defending positions 
In clash between worldview systems, 
When the new social contract conditions 
Are turning outsiders to victims. 

When fear does not meet expectation 
To undo the human existence, 
You come to reveal that mankind
Is not collateral damage resistant.
 
When a change in the established order
Shapes new social contract standards, 
We get to know what for a human is normal , 
When ignoring or preaching the answers.
 
Are we in a state of war with each other? 
Are humans empathic creatures?
Was it Hobbes, who was right with Leviathan?
Or was it Locke with his own state of nature? 
 
Are philosophers our salvation?
To whom do we turn for the future? 
When drafting the values of nations 
Let history be our teacher!
 
In the new interpersonal order
Between Hegel’s Slave and a Master 
Beware of prediction by Orwell, 
Beware of prediction by Snyder! 
 
In the digital age we endow
Our privacy’s total transparence:
You have nothing to hide from my eyes now -
I have nothing to show for your clearance!
 
You defend the status quo of affairs?
Are conspiracies just a mirage?
What do companies do with cartels?
What do spies do with espionage?
 
No matter what side you are taking,
Your position shall make you complicit:
Not knowingly you are shaping 
The result you did not solicit!
 
Government must be a defender 
Of people’s common advances...
Humans, do not surrender
Your liberty’s terminal chances!
