yellowdoggie, watch this video called "How Modern Liberals Think"


He talks about John Lennon's Imagine and why it is actually such a terrible song. It's really a song about a utopia of nothingness - a place where people give up all their things and their beliefs so there is nothing to talk about, nothing to live for, nothing left to fight over, etc.

I used to love that song, but I have come to realize that it really is Lennon's way of describing a very ugly and gray world. We can never get to that world and we should never want to. Please watch it!

Alz, I will watch it because I'm not afraid of ideas that challenge my own. I used to be a conservative Christian, and a member of the Young Republicans. But that was just how my parents brought me up, and now I'm Buddhist and we believe that detachment from the world is a condition to be desired. So the utopia of nothingness is, when you think about it, nirvana. But I will watch the video. I AM a liberal, but hey. I've changed my mind before and I might again. Life is short, and I'm trying to be as many people as possible before I die. Peace.:)
