Just so, do not shout the truth at power. Rather, opt out, do not participate, quietly melt away. Undermine and subvert. As effective with our modern idols (increasingly shrill, desperate, insistent, dangerous) as with Pharaoh.

Amen. Tyranny excludes itself from the web of relational truth, and becomes obsessed with surveillance and control instead.

I see it as an example of an act of liberation that is in the best interest of the soul: that all encompassing place of infinite smallness that defies definition, other than being a defining feature of ourselves. This place is beyond both vice and virtue, it gives birth to these things so is in essence higher than them, more a parent to them. The voice of the soul can call for a terrible love as well as kindly, it moves to its own desire and shouts curses as well as blessings.
