Sounds Familair..

Surely only fools or self-deceivers, or those whose lives are exceptionally fortunate, can face that thought without flinching..Well, we have to end apartheid for one. And slow down the nuclear arms race, stop terrorism and world hunger.. We have to provide food and shelter for the homeless,and oppose racial discrimination and promote civil rights, while also promoting equal rights for women.. We have to encourage a return to traditional moral values..Most importantly, we have to promote general social concern and less materialism in young people.. Pa-trick.. How thought-provoking...
