There are cries of rape from the Amerikan dream. The dark half, the reality of when the dream fails for those who are a bit under qualified. The lower class has no part in their dream. Homelessness plagues every city - a tide of hopelessness. Many have given up, lost in the rat race of the competitive world. Their dreams are just a living void of oppression. Bourgeois dreams father only oppression. Look down at your feet! Do you see him there? Do you see how your dream can work against you? Do you wonder why 1/5 of the nation lies in poverty- a desecration of your utopian dream. The harsh reality unfolds… capitalism is opposition against those living under it. World burning to the ground. Life for the few privileged by chance. Oppression is in demand - it is essential to maintain control. The standards set in the competing world are too harsh for some. Lost in the capitalist race to "succeed." Despair - poverty stricken circumstances and crime are inevitable for some living under a bourgeois domain. Their power means oppression. Their power means oppression.
