Raw, adjective: 7. brutally or grossly frank: a raw portrayal of human passions.
All I have is a voice
To undo the folded lie,
The romantic lie in the brain
Of the sensual man-in-the-street
And the lie of Authority
Whose buildings grope the sky:
There is no such thing as the State
And no one exists alone;
Hunger allows no choice
To the citizen or the police;
We must love one another or die.
~ excerpt from W.H. Auden's "September 1, 1939," quoted so beautifully last night by Alan Jones at the Howie Zinn memorial
