People sleep in their beds at night…


people sleep peacefully in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

We overstand clearly that an Afurakan society can only be highly civilized,  while other men, inevitably “less civilized”, are there to guard and protect them.

Weapons  and the desire to use them, discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property…

When an animal is infected, either naturally or by experimental injection, with a bacterium, virus, or other foreign body, the animal recognises this as an invader and acts in such a way as to remove or destroy it. Likewise with intelligent sentient beings, no dictator and no invader, can hold an imprisoned population by force of arms forever.

I had reasoned this out in my mind, there was one of two things I had a right to, liberty or death; if I could not have one, I would have the other.

I’ve been dragged across the desert in my bare feet
with no food or water with nowhere to sleep
Been ridiculed and abused
wrongfully accused
What more can they do to me
What more can they do to me
I’ve been looked out with no reason
With no reason why
Had to look straight into my enemy’s eyes
Been stripped from my head to my toe
Nobody seems to know
What more can they do to me
What more can they do to me
And they took the heart you beat with and they tore it down
They put all your dignity on the ground
Left you afraid and alone
The truth is still unknown
What more can they do to you
What more can they do to you
And they told you to go back where you come from
But you chose not to react
You chose to stay strong
And when they take everything away and still forgiveness you pray
And what more can they take away
What more can they do to you
What more can they take away
What more can they take away
What more can they take away
What more can they take away
What more can they take away
What more can they take away
What more can they take away
I’ve been dragged across the desert in my bare feet with no food or water with nowhere to sleep
