The impediment to action advances action. What stands in the way becomes the way.
…the moment we have a fixed heart we have a free hand.

- Oswald Spengler, “Man and Technics”.

When there is nothing left but sorrow and love of Big Brother…
We shall lift you clean out of history.
We shall turn you into gas and pour you into the stratosphere.
Nothing will remain of you.
Not a name in a register.
Not a memory in a living brain.
