Revolution-A Rock and Roll Epistle
By Richard Girard
Cover, Beatles' Album "Hey Jude," copyright Apple Records 1968
"You say you want a revolution,
Well you know
We'd all want to change the world;
You tell me that it's evolution,
Well you know
We'd all want to change the world.
But when you talk about destruction,
Don't you know that you can count me out.
Don't you know it's gonna be alright..."
"Revolution", Hey Jude;
The Beatles (1968)
The time has come for the America to remember its revolutionary heritage, and throw down the oligarchs and their surrogates who have perverted and subverted our Constitution, our way of life, and the American peoples' basic human dignity.
We have been at the mercy of the oligarchic bankers and executives of gigantic financial institutions and corporations whose reason for being is the making of money and its concomitant acquisition of power. They have been our nation's curse for far too long, showing no regard for the cost of their hoarding wealth to their fellow human beings, or any other living thing, and without any sort of reckoning for their depredations so far.
Wal-Mart is emblematic of what is wrong with America's economy, most especially the concentration of power and wealth.
