I was participating in a thread started by inforeal
about Jesse Venturas letter to the ruling elite, and it was very interesting to hear all
the passionate and different thoughts people have out there about just how the people should go about making our voices heard and demanding an end to
a corrupt government that is no longer representing the best interests of the people. The suggestions made ranged from violent revolution, peaceful
protest, dropping out completely, voting out and/or arresting the PTB...and many more...
So as I'm pondering this and watching this thread unfold an old song comes to my mind, and this is what happened.
Out of the blue the song "Get Together" popped into my mind, a little before my time, didn't even remember who sang it.......anyways, my BF looked it
up for me, turns out it was done by a band called " The Youngbloods"...great old hippy song....optomistic message.
Now here's where it gets weird, we start looking into this band's history and discover this song was put on a list after 911 by Clear Channel that
recommended this song along with many others not be played because of "questionable lyrics"....really!?
Check out this list, some of the greatest tunes ever, "Imagine" John Lennon, "What a wonderful world", Louis Armstrong, to name a few......old and new
classics that provoke emotion, many personal favorites of mine.
The events surrounding 911 were certainly a catalyst to my awakening and disillusionment of our corrupt government run behind the scenes by outright
criminals, too evil to even comprehend. The idea of even trying to "highjack" our feelings, our bond to fellow humans, by witholding the small comfort
certain music brings us is yet another example of why we need to show these monsters the door.
Maybe we desend on Washington and BLAST every song on this list until TPTB are so sleep deprived they have no choice but to address our issues!
Here are a few of the responces I recieved which inspired me to make this post
Absolutely true. It gets down to basics. “Get Together” is the downfall of the elite, for they rule us based on divide and conquer. The way they
divide us is so powerful and professionally enacted, it is an enormous challenge to overcome. But that leads to another great song, in the panorama of
the many that come forth from the human spirit . . .and that song is . . . . We Shall Overcome!
this should be started in a different post its a good topic music does make us listen to the message of common men our subconscious has been armed
with all we need to know to beat them
I know this isn't a new idea, but maybe we could brainstorm in this thread on how we might use music to rally the masses on a larger scale in an
organized effort in the US and abroad, this would have to be something that was done on a certain day all across the world, in parks, in churches, in
front of government buildings, anywhere we can think of...the music could be appropriate for the groups gathering, but it would all have the same
central theme and message. We want peace and a government that has integrity...no more behind the scene deals being made at the peoples peril.
I really can see this having some "punch" if it was done well and organized. If we could get the momentum, possibly celebs involved (hey it's all
good, they use the media and celebs against us, maybe we turn the tables) Millions of people all over the world playing music for peace, couldn't bury
that story in MSM.....anyways I hope others will share their ideas, and help me to formulate a plan of action cause I'm willing to really throw myself
in to this project, I have the vision, need some help from my friends with the nuts and bolts on how this might work......
So I leave you all with this song.......
