In order to be strong
Make somebody weak.
To be at the centre of the crowd,
Make somebody as lonely outcast.
To gain extraordinary privilege,
Deny somebody their rights.
Sacrifice a man in the outer world
Keep a man alone and tormented in a cage.
He will mirror the inner man you have sacrificed.
Thus pain will balance pain and end all feeling.
As you have controlled yourself
So you shall control the world.
