I was young once, but that was a long time ago. This world doesn't let children roam it's borders. It grabs a hold at them and rips away that precious time that we all used to know so long ago. The Countries, the Corporations, they all strive for power. I've seen how they work. Using, manipulating, twisting everyone so that they can to reach their own goal of power. With all of this corruption around us, surrounding us and consuming us, we are given a choice. We either adjust to it, or we fight against it. If you adjust to it you survive, you might even prosper, but all you'll ever be is a pawn of a corrupt system. If you choose to fight against it you'll probably die, but at least you'll die -- for your own cause and not on a whim of some corporate executive who knows or cares nothing about anything but his striving for power. Me, I'm stuck between fighting and adjusting. You see, I'm not sure if I want to die yet. Oh well, we'll see what tomorrow brings. We'll see if there really is something left worth fighting for.
