Thorn of the Rose Issue 17: The Invisibles’ Voice 3/5/2032
Can you trust those who are different from you?
To: Safe Channel Subscribers Thank you all for reading these newsletters. As most of you know, the situation for the invisibles--those without keys—the illegals who can not be registered and the the no-marks who refuse to have a Port implanted in their foreheads, continues to worsen. In cities all around the country, indeed, all around the globe, we hear reports of Illegal Killers, vigilantes who believe that everyone who is unregistered is automatically a terrorist, a criminal and should be shot on sight.
You and I know this is utterly absurd—for those without the marks include gentle mystics who believe that a Port on one’s forehead would obliterate the third eye, fundamentalists who believe that the mark is one of the beast. Out of faith, they refuse to be marked, and for their faith they are persecuted.
Yes, others have come to this country illegally escaping the violence and poverty in their own, seeking a better life—in fact the very life you who were born to the right parents and in the right country are privileged to lead automatically. Should these, too, be killed simply for wanting what you already possess?
Yes, there are terrorists out there who lurk, unmarked, and bomb buildings and blow up planes and spread diseases and pollution into our dwindling water supplies. But would registering these people make any difference? I, for one, doubt that.
Right now, we are engaged in a battle for lives. Just yesterday, I saw a young woman shot to death. Yet no one, not a registered citizen let alone the unregistered, the no-marks, dared retrieve her body, for the Illegal Killers owned the streets, terrorizing everyone. It was not until morning that I dared venture out. At first, I merely covered the body, noting her smooth and unmarked forehead. Then I spotted her child shivering by the dumpster. How could I not rescue her child first? When I returned for the body, the Illegal Killers had brought it out—not only her but dozens more, and were celebrating their cleansings with a bonfire made from these bodies. No one dared complain.
For if you are not registered, you do not exist. What can you do, you ask? First, support your undergrounds. Find them, seek them out. Give what you can to these starving refugees. Second, write to everyone you know. Your congress representatives, your friends, your colleagues. The chief of police in your city. Use your keys, your registerd internet access. Beg and plead for legal protection for the unregistered. For are they not human? Do they truly need to bleed?
This takes trust and courage, I know. But please, step out in trust for these children, these women, these men, who can not step out of the shadows for themselves.
