Love the message John put out. Nothing short of amazing, easy and totally workable if people just gave it a chance. Idk about everyone praising him as totally great though. Just talk to Julian Lennon and find out how great the man really was. Watch some interviews with Julian and you'll start to see a completely different side to John than the loving, peaceful man we all remember him as.

I've not spoken to you for a while, probably 2 years now, how are you ?
Lennon speaks on many different levels and I think he did it well in this interview.

I like that he said, "We're all Hitler inside. We're all Christ inside." I say this because, despite my love of his music, message, and philosophy - which I do believe he genuinely believed in - all was not rosy peace and love on his part.
By all accounts he had a very bad temper, and wasn't the best of fathers to Julian to say the least. Everyone in the Beatles had enormous egos, which was ultimately what split them up. People can blame Yoko Ono, or this or that, but at the end of the day it was their egos. (Although George Harrison seems to have suffered least from that universal human affliction among them.)
With that said, I still believe he truly believed in the philosophy of nonviolence and love he preached. I just think he was a complex person, as are we all, neither a saint nor a monster. And certainly not the demigod some see him as. As he acknowledged himself here, "We're all Hitler inside. We're all Christ inside" to varying degrees. His positive influence on the world, I would like to believe, was immense and lasting.
John Lennon was better than almost all of us, a great musician, a great poet, a great philosopher and a great man at life. - ProjectJimmy
The phenomenon of the Beatles was not a spontaneous rebellion by youth against the old social system. Instead it was a carefully crafted plot to introduce by a conspiratorial body which could not be identified, a highly destructive and divisive element into a large population group targeted for change against its will. New words and new phrases--prepared by Tavistock(1)-- were introduced to America along with the Beatles. Words such as "rock" in relation to music sounds, "teenager," "cool," "discovered" and "pop music" were a lexicon of disguised code words signifying the acceptance of drugs and arrived with and accompanied the Beatles wherever they went, to be "discovered" by "teenagers." Incidentally, the word "teenagers" was never used until just before the Beatles arrived on the scene, courtesy of the Tavistock Institute for Human Relations.
As in the case of gang wars, nothing could or would have been accomplished without the cooperation of the media, especially the electronic media and, in particular, the scurrilous Ed Sullivan who had been coached by the conspirators as to the role he was to play. Nobody would have paid much attention to the motley crew from Liverpool and the 12-atonal system of "music" that was to follow had it not been for an overabundance of press exposure. The 12-atonal system consisted of heavy, repetitive sounds, taken from the music of the cult of Dionysus and the Baal priesthood by Adorno and given a "modern" flavor by this special friend of the Queen of England and hence the Committee of 300. - Excerpted from Dr. John Coleman's book "The Committee of 300"
10. To weaken the moral fiber of the nation and to demoralize workers in the labor class by creating mass unemployment. As jobs dwindle due to the post industrial zero growth policies introduced by the Club of Rome, the report envisages demoralized and discouraged workers resorting to alcohol and drugs. The youth of the land will be encouraged by means of rock music and drugs to rebel against the status quo, thus undermining and eventually destroying the family unit. In this regard, the Committee commissioned Tavistock Institute to prepare a blueprint as to how this could be achieved. Tavistock directed Stanford Research to undertake the work under the direction of Professor Willis Harmon. This work later became known as the "Aquarian Conspiracy". - Excerpted from "21 Goals of the Illuminati and The Committee of 300" by Dr. John Coleman
I've had enough of watching scenes
Of schizophrenic, egocentric, paranoiac prima donnas
All I want is the truth
Just gimme some truth
