Frankly, I couldn’t imagine that this would ever be possible. I didn’t think that the day would come when someone would undertake such tremendous work.

To get rid of it forever.
When we attain the root of evil,
And, ashamed, will reveal the Light,
When the culprit will leave the stage,
Never bringing the wanted change,
We will discover the formula for goodness:
