One thought on “For what it’s worth

  1. Great song. Such as –

    “…Young people speaking their minds
    Getting so much resistance from behind…

    Like the 400 young people who got arrested a day or two ago for protesting the Transcanada Keystone XL pipeline? Why on earth should people who point out that maybe we shouldn’t despoil the Earth to the point where it cannot support life, plus leave no resources for future generations, be subject to arrest?

    “…Paranoia strikes deep
    Into your life it will creep
    It starts when you’re always afraid
    You step out of line, the man come and take you away…”

    We’re not the ones who are paranoid. It is our rulers who are paranoid – afraid that we’ll stumble onto something that will want to make us stop taking orders from them, stop working for them, and giving the deference of power to them. Hence we get spied on constantly, and find that what we thought were rights are revoked on a moment’s notice. Our leaders do that because they know they and their policies are no damn good, and there is really no reason for us to give them allegiance.

    Keeping people perpetually afraid is no accident. It is deliberate policy.
