People Confusion Is


With a long history of American persecution,
programs, discriminatory laws,
expulsions of certain people to live on the fringes of society.

Laws that are passed to cause wide spread hate and distrust,
then when those same citizens
harm those that those laws made vulnerable
and then by arresting those that caused them said harm.

Confusion is
when those that posses a superior grasp of the English Language
twist those same words
so that those whom are made vulnerable by them
need attorney's
to now tell them that their inability to understand them is the problem.

Medieval and modern prisons
and a systematic plan of total annihilation of what was considered an enlightened American country,
it's not hard to blame people for feeling terrified and insecure
when over taxed people are told they are it's problem.
