    And you, America, that passion made you. You were not born to
    prosperity, you were born to love freedom.

    cannot have all the luxuries and freedom also.

    Your Dollar is your only Word,
    The wrath of it your only fear.

    “You build it altars tall enough
    To make you see, but your are blind;
    You cannot leave it long enough
    To look before you or behind.
    —Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935)

    While this America settles in the mould of its vulgarity, heavily
    thickening to empire,
    And protest, only a bubble in the molten mass, pops and sighs out,
    and the mass hardens,
    —Robinson Jeffers (1887–1962)
