The hermit, who had tucked it in the tuft of his hair safely, in turn gave the strand to the King, with the wish that the hair be enshrined in a boulder shaped like the hermit's head. The King, had inherited super natural powers from his father who was well known as Zawgyi (a proficient alchemist) and the mother was a naga (serpent dragon) princess.

    Both Germany (before World War I) and Belgium ruled the area in a colonial capacity. Like most Europeans before them, the Belgians believed that the X were originally not from sub-Saharan Africa but had migrated from Europe via northern Africa or from the Middle East, due to what they characterized as physical features they associated as Caucasian. As a result, they allowed only the X to be educated and only they could participate in the colonial government. Since the Y were the majority, such discriminatory policies engendered resentment. When the Belgians assumed control following World War I, they asked for advice from the Germans, who told them to continue promoting the X.

For us, human rights are contradictory to the rights of the people, because we base rights in man as a social product, not man as an abstract with innate rights. "Human rights" do not exist except for the bourgeois man, a position that was at the forefront of feudalism, like liberty, equality, and fraternity were advanced for the bourgeoisie of the past....
    ...with the experience of triumphant revolutions, with the construction of socialism, new democracy and the dictatorship of the proletariat, it has been proven that human rights serve the oppressor class and the exploiters who run the imperialist and landowner-bureaucratic states. Bourgeois states in general. . . . Our position is very clear. We reject and condemn human rights because they are bourgeois, reactionary, counterrevolutionary rights, and are today a weapon of revisionists and imperialists, principally Yankee imperialists.”

  • 44. The key components of what?
    People's war: The armed branch of the party must not be distinct from the masses. To conduct a successful revolution the needs and demands of the masses must be the most important issues.
    New Democracy: In backward countries, socialism cannot be introduced before the country has gone through a period in which the material conditions are improved. This cannot be done by the bourgeoisie, as its progressive character is long since replaced by a regressive character.
    Contradictions: as the most important feature of society: Society is dominated by a wide range of contradictions. As these are different in nature, they must also be handled in different ways.
    Cultural revolution: Bourgeois ideology is not wiped out by the revolution; the class-struggle continues, and even intensifies, during socialism. Therefore an instant struggle against these ideologies and their social roots must be conducted.
    Three Worlds Theory: During the Cold War, two imperialist states formed the “first world”; the United States and the Soviet Union. The second world consisted of the other imperialist states in their spheres of influence. The third world consisted of the non-imperialist countries. Both the first and the second world exploit the third world, but the first world is the most aggressive part. The workers in the first and second world are “bought up” by imperialism, preventing socialist revolution. The people of the third world, on the other hand, have not even a short-sighted interest in the prevailing circumstances. Hence revolution is most likely to appear in third world countries, which again will weaken imperialism opening up for revolutions in other countries too.

    Follows a description of the mouth of a creature Y by X
    ...the Y has what we may call its head and mouth down below, and a place for the issue of the residuum up above. The Y has, also, five hollow teeth inside, and in the middle of these teeth a fleshy substance serving the office of a tongue. Next to this comes the esophagus, and then the stomach, divided into five parts, and filled with excretion, all the five parts uniting at the anal vent, where the shell is perforated for an outlet... In reality the mouth-apparatus is continuous from one end to the other, but to outward appearance it is not so, but looks like a horn lantern with the panes of horn left out.
    The creature Y is named after the old English for spiny hedgehogs which they resemble and due to the accuracy of the above description, its mouth is also called X’s Lantern

    The voluntarily unfinished aspect of the 60m high tower carries heavy symbolism, as it is oriented eastwards of the continent, from which by the time of the completion of the building no one participated.
    Urban legends and Internet memes have long alleged that its design consciously mirrors the X by Y (the Vienna version), and although unfounded, the rumor has entered mainstream media.
    It is alleged that the Z is clearly saying symbolically that their goal is a defiant reversal of an act of God. The prophecy of Daniel chapter 2 tells us that this end-time attempt at unification will ultimately fail as an unfinished work, that it will soon be replaced by the Kingdom of God.

    A X is a passage situated below or behind a tier of seats in an amphitheatre, through which crowds can exit at the end of a performance. Despite their association with Ancient Rome, X are still found in some theatres, and many sports stadiums. The Oregon Shakespeare Festival, for instance, has X in two of its theatres.
    According to Cicero, Julius Caesar escaped an assassination attempt because he felt sick after dinner; instead of going to the latrine, where his assassins were waiting, he went to his bedroom and so avoided assassination on that occasion. However, the term X does not appear until the 4th century AD, about 400 years after Caesar and Cicero.
    Probably X is the reason why this misconception arose.
