A Little Hippie Music For Ya

by Rich Miles

Here's a musical moment for you from, quite literally, all over the world. Listen to the music, but also watch the names and locales as they go by on the screen. Bono, lead singer of Ireland's U-2, is included, but I'm bound to say tnat I haven't heard of any of the other players on the video.

Note, too, the truth in the lyrics. War has GOT to stop. It's not human. In fact, it's anti-human. We don't need no more trouble.

And while America is not alone in the warlike business, why is it that we are the most warlike of all nations? Why are we the bullies on the block? Why don't we take care of our people, instead of getting them killed on foreign shores?

Listen to the music. Maybe some ideas will occur to you.

Thanks for sharing, Rich! A great groove with a very relevant message. It bothers me that hippies and "hippie philosophy" have consistently been portayed by our corporatist media and even mass culture as being "eccentric" or something strange. The core elements of hippie philosophy, peace, love, acceptance, harmony, sharing, and so on, are all civilized, common sense values. Peace and love to you, brother, and I mean it! V

Very Good, Rich.

Even a glittering cosmopolitan would enjoy this.
