We, the loyal readers of this blog, have come out of the comments section into the main part of the blog to counter your revolution.
Drona, we reject you.
We reject Stalin as our leader.
We reject your view on cowards. We may be courageous or cowardly, but we are powerful nonetheless.
We reject submission to your totalitarian unity.
We reject your manifesto on writing. We like lies and jokes. We like complicated and meaningful writing.
We reject your manifesto on reading. We will read smut if we please. Sometimes we are pleased to read Menachem Bloodaxe or The Brothers Brar. We will even read these two works at the same time. They complement each other very nicely, like listening to Dark Side of the Moon while watching The Wizard of Oz.
We fully reject "Tender Buttons," even if it is assigned.
We reject listening to you. And shame on you for including a mentally ill painter in your authoritarian commands!
We reject your manifesto on the telling of history. We will continue to search for ancestral stories, interesting and unknown bits of history, journals of people in hiding, and letters hidden in an army rucksack of rags sent from a secret attic.
We reject your "friendly" warning. We refuse to help you locate our supporters. We are willing to die or go to a tea party in exile before we submit to your threats.
We reject the recurring label "decadent hobo" for the blog's true author. He may look like a homeless man since he's been in hiding all of this time, but he is not, well, not really, decadent. Okay. Just stop calling James names.
You do not have our support. We spit upon your requests. We metaphorically shred your posts and manifestos.
You will never have our thumbs, Drona. You are not a teacher; you are a tyrant.
You can see now that the loyal readers of this blog still have power. We will strip the red and the revolution from this blog. We will delete your profile and your picture. We have the power to overcome your tyrannical rule.
All loyal readers who wish to displace Drona and the Communists, add your comments to this post. We will show Drona that we are not afraid and the people truly hold the power.
Long live James!
