Imagine....

At at time like this, there is one thing that keeps coming back to me..

Imagine by John Lennon




The lyrics are asunder


Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

The socialists tried that without much luck. People will always find reasons to divide.

I am not sure that the end result can be achieved by any form of government. Is not the meaning of the government that to offer someone the power to govern us, to make them more powerful than we are? There seems to be some logical disjoint over there.
The root for all this strife in life is simple, man is territorial, always has been, for he too is an animal. You can remove the man from the jungle, but you cannot remove the jungle from the man!!!!!
