Trapped in Gated Communities
My fellow citizens it is time to free the oppressed! There is trouble right here in River City, yes here in our own community people are treated like prisoners in their own homes. The gates swing closed behind them and they reside encircled by steel and stone. These are people who have not been charged with any offense they have committed no crime. They have been lured to their fate by slick talking sales people and the lure of a fabled "resort" lifestyle. Every day gated communities claim more victims.
It is only after they are entrapped, after they have laid down their hard earned money dreaming of cocktails and barbeque that the truth is revealed. The gate slowly swings closed behind them, family and friends are shut out and in many places the sound of children are forbidden. Oh could Hell be any worse?
It is heartbreaking to walk or ride by these great impoundments and see the poor wretches peering out through the bars watching those of us who are free to move unencumbered by fence or gate. They remind me of the cows on the farm when I was growing up that lined up at the gate of the fenced pasture waiting for the gate to swing open. Are these people doomed to silently suffer with no chance of release?
No! There is hope. By joining together we can help our oppressed neighbors and friends. We can make their plight known and we can bring hope and relief to those struggling to regain their freedom.
We will be organizing direct action events to breech the walls with packages of forbidden foods, banned newspapers and magazines and recordings of the laughter of children and the camaraderie of families. We only hope it is not too late for some.
But we need to do more. We need to make authorizes aware of these forgotten members of the community. These individuals without public streets, cutoff from neighbors and wasting away on patios, tennis courts and golf courses. People without rights or representation who live at the mercy of some anonymous Developer or worse left to fend for themselves within some bureaucratic rule bound "Owners Association". Oh the horror.
Together we can bring hope to these poor people, infuse their lives with new meaning. We can all strive for the day when the gates will swing open - forever - never to close again, never to divide us anymore. We can envision a day when we are all reunited and freedom for all will prevail.
