    @imaginatione; I have problems with some of the ideas. I doubt if you will get 100% agreement on anything. Sometimes (not always), death and destruction will happen no matter what we do.

    The implied villain in the video, America, isn’t the worst and if we get rid of it we may, to paraphrase 2pac, “jump out of the frying pan into another form of war”.

    Gandhi didn’t like people using his ideas as an excuse for cowardice and not standing up for yourself, which he said was worse than violence.

    Neither peace nor war exists independently of us. Political and military leaders have grave responsibilities with respect to peace – but they too are members of the society that we as individuals help to create. Peace in the world depends on peace in the hearts of individuals; this depends on each of us practising ethics by disciplining our negative thoughts and emotions, and developing basic spiritual qualities. Dalai Lama

    @davekeays no, we educate the world to peace. war can’t happen if enough people refuse to accept it. The warmongers can’t send people to war if they will not go. People united have the real power. It is how slavery was abolished, minorities got rights, and the vietnam war ended.

    As much as I love this song I have to ask; what do we do, picket the world to peace?

    Yes America is a force that is brutal to its neighbors. But didn’t Spain, Britain, France, Germany, Portugal, Aztec, Cherokee, Mayan, Ottoman, Rome, etc. do the same?

    It is to easy to blame goverments when we are our goverments. Every time we are silent we support wars. Thanks to all who are willing to not be silent.

    @sex69rules We are heading to a world with no countries. Sadly not in the way we would envision. The fascist elite are only a couple years from imposing their global government. NAFTA, EU, the UN, are all designed to erode national sovereignty and transfer control of the world’s resources into the hands of a few. George Orwell was a prophet and 1984 (combined with Brave New World) is the future of humanity. I pray I am wrong.

    Michael Franti is not only a great artist but a great person! He reminds me of the male version of Lauryn Hill.

    He’s a very talented emcee (rapper), singer and musician. The things like him going to Iraq makes me respect him even more.

    bluegrasskayak Says:

    Michael conveyed the beauty of the world on the 31st at the Vogue. He sang about Love songs , which should be THE common ground we all share, and then yes about Obama. Do not deny that this is a time to rejoice and that this is a landmark. There are not sides, and we should not be polarized. Look at what gift the world is getting…someone who said they are listening! This is Change.But Michael made known WE have to be the sacrifice and the action and the words and the effort.But rejoice I will.
