This is an atypically short post. I don’t have anything to add. Please just listen.
“So now as I’m leavin’
I’m weary as Hell.
The confusion I’m feelin’
Ain’t no tongue can tell.
The words fill my head
And they fall to the floor.
That if God’s on our side
He’ll stop the next war.”
Yeah, I always thought the anti-war message of this song would be impossible to overlook. However, it was also recorded, post-2001 as an un-ironic, GOD IS ON OUR SIDE WE ARE THE USA: https://youtu.be/xF92JKKlfRM
It’s pretty scary. (I originally found this when I tried to write a War on Terror post.)
Wow. That video shows a level of unawareness I didn’t know was possible. It’s cartoonish.
I hated to do that to you, but that’s not so far off from what people come into classes believing. It’s kind of like your “I’ve never seen a Chinese monkey” story.
