This is a great song by Bob Dylan, good baseline and a current message during this time of campaign season.
The reality is we all serve somebody either voluntarily or involuntarily, knowingly or unknowingly – I suggest replacing the words of the lord or the devil with others of your choice to find your personal resonance, like good and evil, corporatists, corrupt politicians, oligarchy and democracy, the possibilities are endless and ultimately no one is immune.
Kind of a odd era in Dylan’s story all things consider when he produced a couple of “gospel” albums but Dylan is Dylan.
Above all respect yourself and be worthy of respect.
Know yourself and the environment both natural and political – serve your fellow human beings and the common good.
