Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

War in the Mind - Freedom Time

I love this song- it's so deep that it takes several listens to catch all the Biblical references. 

Lauryn is one who called out the pervie priests at the Vatican, refused to become another Beyonce, or Rhianna butt-shaker. When these songs came out from her unplugged session, the talkers said she was "crazy". Her lyrics are some of the most sane things I've heard.

She goes straight to the heart of what's wrong with the world - Mystery Babylon.

"Everything else is damned, let him with ears understand."


  1. Thanks for trying to lend a hand the other day. The epilogue.

    1. Wow. You've got to say that your post was indeed popular. I think people are still commenting on it. I would put it back up. You could do a series addressing the concerns with all these police killings of kids with toy guns, getting militarized, etc. to bridge the gap.
