The easiest and surest way to die in any generation is to speak the truth.
The only way one could awake and have this be not the case is to awake in heaven.
Our feeling of security against the rich, against the famous, against the powerful, against any who have such goods in the eyes of the many, is that we secretly have such things in the eyes of the few. wisdom, and truth, and all others, that when we see truth, and realize even that we do not have.
And then, and only then, are the many and the few united in their hatred of what is good, and true, and beautiful. The few, because they know they have them not already, and the many, because of what they thought they had but still do not.
