Folk song about dignity by urban folk singer Susmit Bose:

We invite you to submit dignity-related multimedia artwork to Breakingranks.net. If your material is suitable for the site, we will gladly post it here and use it for e-postcards to send your friends. This section will also eventually showcase other media, standard and experimental, through which dignity messages are being transmitted.

Rid the World of Rankism
A poem plea by Francisco Gomes de Matos

When we put a person or people down
There’s more than an act of humiliation
Because it’s on Humanity we frown
And commit a human rights violation

When we put a person or people down
There’s more than an act of minimization
Because it’s on Human Dignity we frown
And disrespect the wisdom of cooperation

When we put a person or people down
There’s more than an act of domination
Because it’s on Human Equality we frown
And of Rankism we teach perpetuation

But if we treat a person or people well
So they will share their place in the Sun
The same humanizing story we will tell
Our World has become a Family of One
