BTW we are speaking about John`s song!
Originally we were, but the last several pages this has mostly been a discussion about peace activism through music. So I don't see why I wouldn't be allowed to bring Paul into the discussion since we're not really discussing the song anymore, and this was never supposed to be a topic exclusively about John.
So, if somebody remembers Paul all of a sudden it makes one think... - jealousy!
For the second and hopefully last time, that's nonsense. This is not a John vs. Paul popularity contest where I'm on Paul's team.
Though for a bit lesser causes
I disagree. At least Paul has specific
causes. John's message was always much too general and simplified to really change anything. If someone says "I want world peace!", my first thought is, "Great, where do you want to start?". John never really answered that question. Paul has campaigned against landmines and for the lowering of the debts of the Third World countries. Now those
are actually good places to start. So if you ask me, Paul's thinking as an "activist" is ahead of John's.
which are not dangerous for the protester himself and his life like the protest against the Vietnam War was.
I'm not buying that John's life actually was in danger because of his activism.
Is Paul included in the CIA or FBI files? NO. And John was. FACT.
Yeah, and Michael Jackson was included in the Stasi (East German secret police) files. So what?
