Free Society!…

*

Big Bee hunkered over his desk with his head in his hands.

Teigue-the-Fool was running amok…

“In what sense can we be regarded as a free society when we have a litany of regulations governing our every move?”

Much more of this and Big Bee would scream, “We are a free society because I say we are a free society,” he said.

“Ah, I see,” said Teigue-the-Fool, “you are using the word ‘free’ in the same way that the American Administration uses the word ‘peace’.”

“Huh?” Said Big Bee.

“To mean the exact opposite of its dictionary definition.”

“I’m not listening,” said Big Bee and clamped his hands over his ears.

“But the people have questions, Sire,” said Teigue-the-Fool and removed Big Bee’s hands from his ears.

“What kind of questions?” asked Big Bee, dejectedly.

“What kind of ‘virus’ discriminates between small and corporate businesses?”

Big Bee said nothing.

“What kind of ‘virus’ discriminates between the man in the street and the world’s elite athletes?”

Big Bee said nothing.

“What kind of ‘virus’ discriminates between ‘peaceful protestors’ and ‘riotous children’?”

Big Bee’s silence had become deafening.

“The word on the street, Sire, is that the virus is man-made.”

Big Bee exploded.

“THE VIRUS IS NOT MAN MADE!”

“No Sire,” said Teigue-the-Fool, “just manipulated.”
