An Act of Hypnosis

“The crimes of the United States [with the collusion of its allies] have been systematic, constant, vicious, remorseless, but very few people have actually talked about them. You have to hand it to America. It has exercised a quite clinical manipulation of power worldwide while masquerading as a force for universal good. It’s a brilliant, even witty, highly successful act of hypnosis.” — Harold Pinter

Just Because, Doesn’t Mean…

Just because someone may be the same colour as you,
Or speaks and sounds like you.
Or just because they may look like you,
Or say the things you like to hear,
Doesn’t mean they have your best interests at heart.
They may be “nice”, but that don’t mean they’re “good”
for you, they maybe just “good fooling you”.
