Re: UFP Anthem

Hey, folks, FWIW, I've finally taken the liberty of writing some lyrics myself, for the first verse. I tried to emphasize pacing as well as meter. And of course, the intent is to stir patriotism within the hearts of the citizens of the nation, as any anthem should:

Hear, all ye peoples, far and wide,
Rise with integrity, honor, and pride,
Stand for this Empire of Liberty,
This One and United Federation!

BTW, here's a YouTube of the full anthem with the annoying applause edited out....
"The saying implies but does not name the effective agency of its supposed utopia.... 'Needs and abilities' are, of course, subjective. So the operative statement may be reduced to 'the State shall take, the State shall give'."
