The Law Of Mankind

Laws without fairness and justice are not really laws.
The so-called law is a system of dictatorship and oppression.

Politicians believe that might is right and this will lead to their downfall.
No man has the right to exercise authority over other men.

The leaders of the world make laws to divide society.
And the law is a weapon to trample upon underprivileged people.

The law should demonstrate equality and impartiality.
It should be in the best interest of every citizen whether police or civilians.

The constitution claims that everybody is subject to law,
But in reality there are different laws for the security forces and politicians.

The judicial system favours the rich and it is prejudiced against the poor.
Corrupt people with blind minds cannot judge fairly.

My fellow citizens of the world, the law of mankind has a foul odour.
In plain language, the law stinks like raw sewage.
