    Documentable according to Williams. Think about it though, did they not all die at the hands of govt. in the least common denominator? Govts. rally their forces to go get the “enemy” of the day as well as just flat out murder them.

        “Yes he is.” This means he is still trying to undo his slavery by consenting to his slave masters? Or, “Yes he is,” meaning he’s lived long enough to have learned the vote accomplishes absolutely nothing to remove the chains that bind him?
