The right to vote makes a republic democratic.
The power to declare war has been used to undermine
rights since the inception of the conception.
Plutocracy undermines democracy
more than any other power.
When war is declared or enacted in fact,
rights are diminished beyond recognition.
When the death penalty is used
to institute genocide,
justice is pushed out
of the legal system.
Racism is bad; sexism as well.
Sectarian religion promotes strife,
but plutocracy is the worst.
It takes money from everybody
and gives it to those who need it least.
Morality has declared plutocracy illegal.
War has to be outlawed to preserve
the representation of rights.
The death penalty has to be abolished
to protect justice in the legal system.
Rights are the fruit of power.
Power is the product of labor.
We pay for government with our taxes.
We have the right to free trade
with prosperity. We have the right
to liberty in the law with justice.
Happy are those who do not choose
the will to power over others.
Happy are those who do not use
the threat of death or damage
to make a profit.
We delight in moral law.
Scientific goodness as defined by needs
leads perception into objective perspective.
Personal perspective goes gonzo
when prejudice drives action
into discrimination, but happiness
rules when objectivity values virtue.
We are like trees planted by the water.
We bear fruit in due season. Our leaves
do not wither. We prosper
with achievement in performance.
Our legacy will not be blown away
like chaff in the wind. Judgment
will have mercy for the merciful.
Fortune will favor the mind
that prepares a place for love
1 Happy are they who have not walked in the counsel of
the wicked, *
nor lingered in the way of sinners,
nor sat in the seats of the scornful!
2 Their delight is in the law of the Lord, *
and they meditate on his law day and night.
3 They are like trees planted by streams of water,
bearing fruit in due season, with leaves that do not wither; *
everything they do shall prosper.
4 It is not so with the wicked; *
they are like chaff which the wind blows away.
5 Therefore the wicked shall not stand upright when
judgment comes, *
nor the sinner in the council of the righteous.
6 For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, *
but the way of the wicked is doomed.
