Story behind the song
Should men, by the natural rights of man, ever be subject to being thrown into an Romanesque-arena, where they must fight for the very survival of their kind, in a democratic republic? According to John Jay in the Federalist: "With equal pleasure I have as often taken notice that Providence has been pleased to give this one connected country to one united people--a people descended from the same ancestors, speaking the same language, professing the same religion, attached to the same principles of government, very similar in their manners and customs, and who, by their joint counsels, arms, and efforts, fighting side by side throughout a long and bloody war, have nobly established general liberty and independence". Clearly, America today needs to apply this statement in a sub-partitioned fashion - not in a 'melting pot' fashion as some erroneously have assumed, in order that different peoples can live together peacefully on the democratic plateau that the republic itself represents. But, various forces in society have wrongfully put out the message everywhere that instead an extreme individual race repression is what this country should represent, thus leading to divisions and nightmarish consequences for men everywhere. America has become indeed a chaotic 'pressure-cooker', rather than a normal society. This is because a base law of political science, that successive generations of the race of people who found a country generally care most about that country's future evolution, is generally not well understood as ignorance increases. Ignorance of, along with disrespect for, the nation's foundation has increased among the populous, thus putting men everywhere into chaos in their lives. Further, deep-down level bonds of trust and loyalty between men and women of a given race, are sabotaged, bringing up serious questions about reproductive rights. At the same time, economic pressures have become unbearable; all of which leads men into an 'arena' -like competition with each other not at all like the society envisioned in the Federalist. To compound matters, American commercial media (and advertisement!) is then spread out to the rest of the globe, in a driven, propagandish way that is resented in the majority of other countries on earth. It is scientifically implausible that the 30,000 to 100,000 years of genetic evolution on separate continents that led to the continental races would stop at the surface of the skin, and not progress inward to the central nervous system. But many repeat over and over this notion of skin color being the only difference between races in an almost brainwashed fashion. see https://image.ibb.co/b7yUj5/2017_08_30_23_43_46.png In genetics, in 2012, a study found that the 90% of human chromosome formerly thought to be 'junk DNA' actually does carry more complex than previously thought imprinted genetic information that may transmit instincts to offspring. The science of the human genome may need 150 years, from THIS time, to fully understand human genetics. However, to understand race more fully takes a complete adding together of the fields of genetics, biology, sociology, anthropology, archaeology, history, political science... and more! Genetics on race is a bit like asking, what can you tell me about wood if I only give you an electron microscope and no other view? But science must unflinchingly and objectively keep studying these subjects, never stopping long with only one observation. And so, we don't really know as much as some portend; thus leading to the ill-societal effects that we see... So, don't be unwittingly misled by the 'friendly' face of human trafficking as seen in popular media and the commercial arts - what's its source? Is it artists on stilts?? Where does it really come from, racketeers? These are fair questions in the here and now. "All eyes are opened or opening to the rights of man. The general spread of the light of science has already laid open to every view the palpable truth..." "There is no truth existing which I fear, or would wish unknown to the whole world." Thomas Jefferson; from letters in 1826. "When in the course of Human Events it becomes necessary for a people to advance from (the subordination in which they've been living), and to assume the powers of the Earth, the equal and independent Station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of Mankind requires that they should declare the Causes... We hold these truths to be Self evident: that all men are created equal and independent; that from that equal Creation they derive Rights inherent and unalienable; among which are the Preservation of Life, and Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness..." Paraphrase from the original draft of the Declaration of Independence by Thomas Paine. "When we are planning for posterity, we ought to remember that virtue is not hereditary." Thomas Paine, from 'Common Sense' (1776). "The cause of America is, in a great measure, the cause of all mankind." Thomas Paine, from 'Common Sense' (1776). "I know of no rights of race superior to the rights of man." Frederick Douglass, letter, 1849. "...I protest against the couterfeit logic which concludes that, because I do not want a black woman for a slave I must necessarily want her for a wife. I need not want her for either. I can just leave her alone." Abraham Lincoln, 1857. "These capitalists generally act harmoniously, and in concert, to fleece the people." Abraham Lincoln, 1837. Where it comes to morals, it is either up the Alps, or down the drains. -An old European Aphorism Read more of Federalist No. 2: http://www.foundingfathers.info/federalistpapers/fed02.htm Guitar recorded with a ProCo RAT 2 into a slightly overdriven 'Tube' preset on a Korg Pandora PX3 using cabinet emulation; then through a high-cut filter in the digital editing (Cubase) domain.
