Frank in the swamps Has anyone the courage now? (Moses Asch) (104* d) RE: Has anyone the courage now? 18 Aug 98


Kynoceph, Much of what you say is true, there's always gonna be another batch of pigs in every generation, but the bosses today are a lot weaker than the bosses at the start of this century because people fought against unimaginable odds. As to the music, I don't believe movement songs have the power to win converts, I think they serve to galvanize people who are already banded together for a purpose. You're probably right about Sam Cookes' song having a greater than recognized impact. A song that is going to enact change within an individual is one that has to make a deep personal connection, while topical songs, no matter what their merit, tend to more objective than subjective.

Frank.
