How does one fashion—a book of resistance?
A book of truth—in an empire of falsehood?
Or a book of rectitude—in an empire of vicious lies?
How does one do this—right in front of the enemy?
Not through the old-fashioned—ways of writing?
How does one do it—in a future technological state?
Is it possible for freedom—and independence...
To arise in new ways—under such conditions?
Will new tyrannies—abolish these protests?
Will there be new responses—by the spirit?
That we can’t—anticipate?
—Philip K. Dick, Interview
Only Apparently Real
