Subject: RE: Politically incorrect national anthems 2
And the basic politics of Woody's song is that of being against inequality and the appropriation of what belongs to everyone by the few. "All this land we are standing on belongs to all of us."

Not what you could call "politically correct" in a society that venerates corporate property, worships private wealth, and grovels before those who possess it.
