“They” wield no true authority.
What they have is magical agreements with demons, and chaos.
Although they call this authority, it is not that which is true.
Because they can overwhelm the consciousness of a single individual with their hive mind, doesn’t equate authority either.
I’ve heard it,
I’ve seen it,
I’ve embodied the emotion of it.
And also it’s opposite.
They are not the same,
Nor ever will be.
