sing4peace Have anti-war songs changed anything? (108* d) RE: Have anti-war songs changed anything? 23 Sep 09


Suzi -

Thank you for posting that song. I'm glad you posted it to this thread as it quite germain. It was a great contribution to the overall conversation. I was so impressed with this song that I am going to learn it.

So here you have helped this song to change one more person. Each song I learn changes me. Isn't that why we all sing? To change the way people are thinking or feeling? Not necessary in a propagandistic way but in a literal way - we sing a funny song in hopes of making someone laugh - a love song to move a heart -

Nice also to visit that website. I can see it being very helpful.

(who, BTW, has not forgotten about providing a linky re: references to Prescott Bush and friends being sanctioned by the U.S. Congress in 1942. It is not a controversial statement as it is a matter of public record and not conspiracy theory. However, even our town research librarian - who I gave this assignment to - has found that the congressional records are not as available online as they used to be and she is having a hard time getting back to pre 2000. Interesting. Not to worry, I will find it and, thanks to Azizi, I will do the blue clicky thing and ta dah! Here it shall be.

The main point of my previous post (September 18, 2009) was in pointing out that we need to broaden our scope when we are reviewing the "lessons" of World Wars I and II if we are ever going to understand the context of our times here in World War III (or is it IV?) Frankly, I thought Bush was being honest when he referred to it as "the never ending war".
