“While there is a lower class, I am in it, while there is a criminal element, I am of it, and while there is a soul in prison, I am not free.”

-Eugene V. Debs


“The genius of our ruling class is that it has kept a majority of the people from ever questioning the inequity of a system where most people drudge along, paying heavy taxes for which they get nothing in return.”

-Gore Vidal

if we hate each other because we have different

colored skin

they will keep us divided

if we hate each other because of our different origins

they will keep us divided

if we hate each other because of our different creeds

(or disbelief in any)

they will keep us divided

if we hate each other because we want what they are

selling, and there’s not enough to go around

they will keep us divided

if we hate each other because our accents are

different

they will keep us divided

if we hate each other because we have different

sexual preferences

they will keep us divided

if we hate each other because of lifestyle choices

(drugs, alcohol, etc.)

they will keep us divided

if we hate each other because of our political beliefs

they will keep us divided

if we hate each other because we have different

hopes & dreams

they will keep us divided.

 

for when we are divided we are weak &

when we are weak they continue to grow stronger.
