Change is not always what people want

This ius a very nice song, but the video also runs through a lot of US and world issues over the last half century.

Some change is for the better, some isn’t.

The United States in particular still has serious racial issues, plus horrific rates of violence and imprisonment. Change there is slow, and could be in the wrong direction under Trump’s leadership (or lack of leadership).

US society has run a fine line between civility and revolt, and that looks to be unchanged still.

The change that occurs is not always of a type that people want.

      It wouldn’t do to have the great unwashed enjoying the same privileges rich people do. Privileges the rich enjoy make life worth living. Once the great unwashed get the same privileges, they stuff things up for everyone. Exclusiveness and discernment must always separate the ruling class from the rest of society.

      The sooner you accept your station in life, the sooner you will find happiness with simple things life can offer…Blazer.

          No need for such low-class ranting.I’m down-ticking you for bringing the ambience of this blog into the gutter.

          What I wrote is quite understandable. Take your time. I think what has gotten to you is the fact somebody is telling it like it is.

      Sure…but equally there is a cohort of the unemployed/unemployable who seem happy enough to take their handout each week and blaze their days away.

    One of the 48 laws of power; promise change, but never deliver.
