Genius... Absolute Genius

thanks for posting. First time I have heard this song, love it.

Same here. Million thanks.

Some of us felt such rage at the thought of white supremacists, racists, and white nationalists marauding on the U.S. Capitol on January 6th plus a Capitol Hill police stand-down. We started to fear the 20th may be a more extreme stand-down and the police will get the military to allow a coup to install Trump as a dictator.

Then, I caught myself. I had been possessed by fear. I suspect others, too.

Then, I remembered the words of Fela, "the secret to life is to have no fear".
