Part of the Machine

I was cleaning up my old house today, well, more like sorting things into boxes. I listened to some classic Rage Against the Machine music while productively sweating. It occurred to me that the raw pressing lyrics of the band did not keep them from becoming part of the machine when they hit the mainstream. I think this is one of the things I've realized in my old(er) age. You can rebel against the machine, and do it well, but to participate in the machine means that you are part of it.
