3 Minute History Lesson

This Land is Mine  “This Land is Mine" is a video from Nina Paley, originally posted on Vimeo. In the end of this video appear the text "Copying is an Act of Love, please copy and share. copyheart.org". So, here it is.

The Exodus Song, "This Land is Mine"  (Lyrics by Pat Boone. Sung by Andy Williams)

This land is mine

God gave this land to me

This brave and ancient land to me

And when the morning sun

Reveals her hills and plains

Then I see a land

Where children can run free.

So take my hand

And walk this land with me

And walk this lovely land with me

Tho' I am just a man

When you are by my side

With the help of God

I know I can be strong.

Tho' I am just a man

When you are by my side

With the help of God

I know I can be strong.

To make this land our home

If I must fight

I'll fight to make this land our own.

Until I die this land is mine!

The Future is Female

I guess most people know my feelings about this. Thanks Nina. Takes a lot of guts to communicate this message about the awful patriarchs.

The only good Jukrislim (patriarch) is a dead one. And, they sure are living and dying to prove it.

I’d say thanks tomaidh for posting this but I imagine he wouldn’t appreciate my comment.

Of course, I stopped caring what the Jukrislims think by the time I was nineteen (not tom, whom I do care what he thinks, well for the most part...).

Come to think of it I never cared for what the patriarchs thought, and have always despised the father-centered family, father-centered society and father-centered government.

Long live the matriarchs.
