Walt Whitman speaks of tyranny

Leonard Durso

“There is no week nor day nor hour, when tyranny may not enter upon this country, if the people lose their supreme confidence in themselves–and lose their roughness and spirit of defiance–Tyranny may always enter–there is no charm, no bar against it–the only bar against it is a large resolute breed of men.”

  1. There are not many Countries where there is not discord. My Country the UK divided because people voted to come out of Europe, where people like me are called racists and bullied. What is wrong with people are they not happy until they are shooting dead people, arguing on streets. Terrorists to cope with.

    Give me Walt Whitman and sanity.
