Who is holding the red threads of recognition? Sometimes it seems as though there's a conspiracy of "allowing" only an elite to remain on the playing board. "Try to wipe (out) the history board (clean); carefully placing The People-pieces into position. The game of recognition. Eyes cut across the history board to watch The people-pieces play against each other. Unbelieveable strategies implemented to overcome and defeat; to keep a selected few in position to grip thinning numbers of The People-pieces. The People-pieces may not have always been on top of the board but certainly haven't been far away. Far away doesn't mean extinct or bloodless, either."
