To The States


Today while reading I rediscovered the following poem by Walt Whitman and wanted to share it with my fellow travelers.

To the States or any one of them, or any city of the States, Resist
much, obey little,
Once unquestioning obedience, once fully enslaved,
Once fully enslaved, no nation, state, city of this earth, ever
afterward resumes its liberty.
