Download MP3, 29 minutes long. Two Ways There are two ways for people to get along in this world.

They are typically quiet, and are told to be. Amazingly the Slave often knows more about what is going on than Masters do. Slaves know what they themselves know and they know what the Master knows since the Master talks. I call it the Punishment System and it creates the painful things that happen or are threatened to happen to the Slave, if the Slave does not go along with the point of view of the Master.
