How long can you run on



How long can you run on – challenging the chalice of God?


Impoverishing the many – to enrich the few?


Empowering the small minority – while disenchanting the vast majority?


Siphoning everything – from the bottom up, at an exponential pace.


How long can this really continue – in the sight of God?


Before He actually acts – to strike you down?

The bow is already slipping beneath the waves. The plunge will come quick.

A stunning way to illustrate

A stunning way to illustrate the unsustainable and egregious inequality we're witnessing. History shows that runaway greed and widespread injustice sooner or later (and often sooner than later) bring down rulers and empires. In the case of hypercapitalism, which is an oligarchy, not a true democracy, the end stage is a catastrophic rift between the rich and the poor, social unrest and finally destruction. 


A beautifully composed and chilling tribute to the song that is painfully relevant today.
