Imagine

 

 

Imagine there's no heaven

 

It's easy if you try

 

No hell below us

 

Above us only sky

 

Imagine all the people

 

Living for today...

 

 

Imagine there's no countries

 

It isn't hard to do

 

Nothing to kill or die for

 

And no religion too

 

Imagine all the people

 

Living life in peace...

 

 

You may say I'm a dreamer

 

But I'm not the only one

 

I hope someday you'll join us

 

And the world will be as one

 

 

Imagine no possessions

 

I wonder if you can

 

No need for greed or hunger

 

A brotherhood of man

 

Imagine all the people

 

Sharing all the world...

 

 

You may say I'm a dreamer

 

But I'm not the only one

 

I hope someday you'll join us

 

And the world will live as one

Yes Ma'am You are not the only one.

 

The "dreamers" bring the change not fake half-hearted change sold to win election - copouts that delay the change.

Well said Jim :)
That was beautiful.

It's a marvelous anthem.  I think his death was engineered to remove the momentum of the Nuclear Freeze Movement.

 

Chapman is so much like Hinckley and the other model psychotics from Gottleb's Gallery.

Hinckley was the bid for an eary GHWB presidency.

 

The phenomenon of the Beatles followed the aborted idealistic thrust of Kennedy's unique approach: peace, self-determination, better quality of life for all.

 

We don't find it in Caroline who is too much the Patty Hearst.

 

In low intensity war we eschew a central leader who may be martyred at any moment.

 

And shun the various despots with their little red books.

Phil,

I think John Lennon was murdered as you said for political reasons, to include the Nuclear Freeze Issue(s).

 

I include the ability of John Lennon to unite the American (and global folks) against the brewing Contra Wars circa 1980 as another reason for Gottleib's criminals to loose the psycho killers.

 

A continuation of the trend Mae Brussells told all the brussell sprouts of the killing the spirit of youth by assassinating musicians and like people to alter the perceptions and thereby the reality of all?

 

Today we are supposed to be personally involved about "Tom Brady" being allowed to play football..... Pleeze!!

 

FWIW

Jim

 

I consider posting a link to "Working Class Hero" one of my favorite Lennon expressions of art.
