“Fifty years ago, John Lennon released ‘Imagine’ and exhorted us to ‘Imagine all the people livin’ life in peace.’ That same year, Lennon released ‘Happy Xmas (War Is Over)’ as part of a major anti-war campaign. Lennon — a musical genius, anti-war activist, and a high-profile example of the lengths to which the Deep State will go to persecute those who dare to challenge its authority — made clear that the only way to achieve an end to hunger, violence, war, and tyranny is to want it badly enough and work towards it. Fifty years later, we clearly don’t want those things badly enough. … For those of us who joined with John Lennon to imagine a world of peace, it’s getting harder to reconcile that dream with the reality of the American police state.” (11/22/21)
