TransAct 17

TransAct statement

"How soon we forget our past when we attempt to stop the inevitability of the future. Those walls you build now are built of fear and hatred, such base materials that erode the soul and are the true cause of your own demise. The flood is already here, we have found the cracks in your dam, we have seeped in from underneath, we have rained in from above, we are your present, we are writing your new history, we are building your future. We are flowing into you, we have always flowed into you and we have always flowed through you. We are you. If you ignore us the future we are making will not include you, you will be left to drown, suffocated not by the flood, but by the barriers you yourself have erected – an alien in your midst."
