Woe unto you, tyrants and redistributionists, hypocrites!

(With apologies to the Original whose words I've based this on.)

Woe unto you, tyrants and redistributionists, hypocrites! For you shut the doors of justice to men, not seeking it yourselves, and prevent others from finding it.

Woe unto you, tyrants and redistributionists, hypocrites! For you seize people's houses, and in pretense make long speeches to justify yourselves: therefore you shall receive the greater damnation.

Woe unto you, tyrants and redistributionists, hypocrites! For you scour sea and land to find one new person to tax, and make him twofold more a slave than the one before him.

Woe unto you, you blind guides, which say that justice is nothing without your contraption of laws!

You fools and blind: which is greater, the law, or the justice behind it?

Woe unto you, tyrants and redistributionists, hypocrites! For you make others pay heavily to support you and tell them to conduct themselves by your declared yoke, omitting the weightier matters of justice, freedom and conscience: these you should have done, and the others left undone.

Woe unto you, tyrants and redistributionists, hypocrites! For you order the construction of beautiful buildings, and commit the foulest of deeds inside.

You blind tyrant, purge yourself of uncleanliness, that the interior may be worthy of the exterior.

Woe unto you, tyrants and redistributionists, hypocrites! Your offices appear clean and polished, yet they are filled with the greatest blackness. You appear righteous to all, but within you are full of hypocrisy and evil.

Woe unto you, tyrants and redistributionists, hypocrites! You build great cemeteries for the childen you send to war, then say, if only you had held office then, you would not have voted so. So you bear witness that you are part of the evil that sent them to die. Fill up, then, the measure of sin of your fellow officeholders!

You serpents, you brood of vipers, how can you escape the damnation of hell?
