When I said not to let anyone get you out of your cipher, I meant do not let anyone get you out of your natural character. In other words, if you think someone has low character, dont stop down to their level.

You say Zion and Babylon are real places. You claim Ethiopia to be Zion. So where is Babylon? Who art Babylon?
