“It is sad to see an influential devil among us contributing to hatred, to lies, to the destruction of moral values, to violence. Sadly this devil in control is recruiting a whole herd of other blind and submissive devils who, otherwise, could have put their innate intrinsic good qualities to use in order, instead, to better this world.”

Spot on Saad! Love how the serpent engulfs and carries the herd as it spirals hypnotically ever larger. Very dark piece for a very dark time. Is there justice and peace to be found after this vision?
