Peaceful revolution

In 1969, a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan, armed with a reel-to-reel tape deck, snuck into John Lennon’s hotel room in Toronto and convinced John to do an interview about peace. Here is Josh Raskin's visual interpretation of that interview.

How true! WE ARE the people who have the power of government. By doing nothing to protest the Iraq war to our elected officials, we are ultimately responsible.for its continuance.

Why was Canada labeled as nothing?

It's been almost 40 years since that interview, and so many things have happened, and yet, everything seems to be the same. Is there really a way to change it?

Reason

I love John Lennon as a philosopher, musician, writer and teacher. But there is one thing John is not, and that is a realist. No. Revolution cannot be non violent. At least one to cause great social and national change. Thats just how it is. All these organizations protesting is meaningless. All these college students living off of government loans showing up to protest a war is a joke. Hypocritical even. Sad. Yes. True. Yes.
