Once They’ve Got You Violent, Then …

“When it gets down to having to use violence, then you are playing the system’s game. The establishment will irritate you – ‘pull your beard’, ‘flick your face’ – to make you fight. Because once they’ve got you violent, then they know how to handle you. The only thing they don’t know how to handle is non-violence and humour.”

Musician, Singer, Songwriter,
Record Producer, Artist, Writer & Activist
