Musical Interlude ~ "War"



"We don't need no more trouble."

I agree.

Saw this on PBS a while ago ~ a great rendition of the Bob Marley song "War," performed by musicians in over 20 countries. The point was to demonstrate a harmonious world, and this time it really works. Hear the words of the reggae bodhisattva:

Until the philosophy which hold one race superior
And another
Inferior
Is finally
And permanently
Discredited
And abandoned ~
Everywhere is war ~
Me say war.

That until there no longer
First class and second class citizens of any nation
Until the colour of a man's skin
Is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes ~
Everywhere is war.

That until the basic human rights
Are equally guaranteed to all,
Without regard to race -
Dis a war.

That until that day
The dream of lasting peace,
World citizenship
Rule of international morality
Will remain in but a fleeting illusion to be pursued,
But never attained -
Now everywhere is war - war.
