The hidden flaw of man is his insatiable desire to dominate though he can only feel complete when everybody sees what he sees.

From this dependence, mankind gains weakness; sickening from a lack of progress. It feeds off the instability of the weaker through manipulation, fears and lies. The collective abide.

What one man accomplishes alone becomes envy of the frail. The feeble aim to deprive him of this ambition. It is this insubordination of the individual that agitates society's strive for the preservation of its normalcy... as if it lingered.

The herd casts a veil that everyone is all one in the same, but this could never be further from the truth. It is this myth that the weaker grasps in desperation to justify the denial of profit.

The depth of humanity's adversity entrenches beyond abysmal scales when it grasps on mirages of promises. Society falls while the collective dances to the waltz in synchronized formation; tethered to chains welded with lies.

“Ladies and gentlemen! Boys and girls! Step right up! We welcome you this glorious evening to witness the degradation of our fellow man. Seven billion performers will show you what you won't see elsewhere! I bring to you, the human sheep!”
