Vox populi - of the mob, the mass , the crowd

Excommunicate the author,burn the book,banish the thought,ban the communication,arrest imagination,mock creativity,trample on sensitivity,curb expression,stifle the voice,suppress the song,crush the revolt within,thwart progress,inculcate fear,corrupt the mind,erase the identity,entrap the clever, incarcerate the brave,victimise the innocent,curtail freedom,enslave institutions,divide the polity,dictate governance,sit in judgement,pronounce your decree.

The soul shall still be free.

In Latin they  say

Nec audiendi qui solent dicere, Vox populi, vox Dei, quum tumultuositas vulgi semper insaniae proxima sit

 I say , give me any day the wisdom of the masses , than the self righteousness of the chosen few.
