    CHAPTER 8
    1 And all the poor bastards who never had a chance will probably never get one either,
    2 Because now the ones who didn't get imprisoned or enslaved or killed are stuck with what the Chosen Nations gave them,
    3 Including the desire for material possessions,
    4 And the lust for power,
    5 And fanatical beliefs about politics and religion,
    6 And corruption,
    7 And disease,
    8 And famine,
    9 And pollution,
    10 And bastard cultures full of poverty, despair, and violence,
    11 Not to mention missionaries,
    12 And debts,
    13 And dictators,
    14 And wars,
    15 And a lot of patronizing lectures about what it takes to be civilized,
    16 From the people who know the most about civilization,
    17 Namely, all the Chosen Nations who ruined their lives in the first place.
    18 Poor poor bastards.
    CHAPTER 9
    1 But history keeps on going,
    2 No matter who gets hurt,
    3 And that's the way it will keep on going,
    4 Until the world ends,
    5 Because some Chosen Nation goes utterly insane,
    6 Which has happened before,
    7 Or because some other Chosen Nation chooses pride over compromise,
    8 Which has happened before,
    9 Or because some other Chosen Nation just can't stop wanting what it hasn't got,
    10 No matter what,
    11 Which has happened before,
    12 And will happen again,
    13 Like everything else in history.
    14 And the only thing certain about any of it is,
    15 No matter how it starts or where,
    16 The next time everyone will pay for it equally,
    17 And there won't be any more Chosen Nations,
    18 Or any Others.
    19 Poor bastards all.

    "The next time everyone will pay for it equally, and there won't be any more Chosen Nations, or any Others. Poor bastards all." ~The Boomer Bible
