Justin Hinds & the Dominoes - The Higher The Monkey Climbs

This is a great song to begin with, but particularly apt in our current circumstances.  "He that exalteth himself, shall be abased." Go ahead, guess who I'm talking about.

And note that the term "monkey" is used here in a socially responsible way. It's perfectly okay to call an white American a monkey if he spins around the room making noise and throwing his own shit at perceived antagonists. He's acting like a  monkey; go ahead and call him a monkey. White people take note: never refer to a black man as a monkey, that's never cool. Justin Hinds could get away with it, because, you know . . .
