i've been listening to Rage Against The Machine more often lately, and there are things that bug me about the world, aside from what they even talk about. i personally think we need to reform a lot of laws, especially sex laws. it's cool that parents and the governments of the world want to protect children, that is great, but these laws are sloppy and double edged, and everytime i hear about some bullshit arrest, i just want to punch something. this is just the top of the iceberg for me too, and i try not to let these things bother me, but i knew if i was in charge, things would be different, i would have police fucking do their jobs and actually SERVE the public and not bully them, i would crack down on corruption on all levels. to tell you the truth, i would opt to be president at near minimum wage, and those fuckers in congress would get pay cuts, that money deserves to go back to the people, but i do agree, we should have some level of screening for welfare, and limit it a bit more, we spend way too much money on that shit, we spend way too much on a lot of shit, we need to cut back the military a bit, not necessarily the troops, but we need to chill out on the technology costs, i mean jeez, don't we have enough cool shit? and we are also wasting time and money with alien technology, and don't get me wrong, it's good to have interest in that, but we focus too much on militarizing it, we should be using that stuff more for education, renewable energy, and just about anything else. i know that fear and power hunger are major factors, we are afraid that other countries are gonna get supertech above us, and we desire the power to be able to fight back if the day ever comes that WW3 starts. but man, i digress, this lyric is about children, it's about how we are brainwashing society into thinking half of everything is rape, because sex is bad? and i can dig and understand not wanting seasoned adults getting it on with kids, that makes perfect sense why a lot would be disgusted with that idea. but let me paint you a fucking picture America, kids are getting arrested, and put on the sex offenders list, every day, for stupid shit like: having mutual sex with their high school girlfriend/boyfriends, sexting to their friends or lovers, having photos of themselves undressed, etc, etc. there are soooooo many better ways to handle these situations, but instead, we fucking have the FBI with guns pointing at our kids, treating them like hardcore convicted sex criminals, over misunderstandings, and natural sexual experimentation, that is of NO FUCKING BUSINESS OF THE FUCKING GOD DAMN GOVERNMENT. and parents, i understand you want to protect your kids from heading down wrong paths in life, but you were kids once, sometimes people just gotta live life and make their own mistakes, and this goes both ways, kids gotta start being more open and honest with their parents when they start getting into romance, we have to start breaking this schism, gotta start mending the relationships between parents and their kids, it's like all parents want to do is rule over their kids bodies with an iron fist, and the kids retaliate by defying, lying, and hiding from their parents, this shit has got to stop, we have to stop letting fear dictate our lives, we have to stop letting the government dictate our lives, this is supposed to be a FREE country, but please tell me, i'm begging you, where the FUCK, is our FREEDOM!?
