1. Farming for supporting yourself

    If you open farm for financial help, then it will not be successful. You should take to farming for supporting yourself, that's all. Grow your own food. Grow your own cloth.

  2. Woman must become a slave

    And the women are declaring "independent." They are begging door to door to a man, "Please give me shelter. Give me a child," and they're independent. Hmm?
