John Lennon, famous musician and political commentary, wrote a famous song called "Imagine." In this song is postulated the lyrics about a society with no religion, no money, no possessions -- no a lot of things. One of the scenarios that he tries to describe is a place with no heaven, no countries, etc. Throughout the song Lennon asks the listener to imagine a life lived in peace implying that peace is achieved by have "none" any of those things. I wonder how a life of nothing can be a fulfilling life?
I wondered if John Lennon were president today, what political party would he align with? Because John Lennon was a hippie and what many might consider a far left-ist mentality, I would almost disagree. I wonder if John isn't so far left that is almost on the hard right? No country sounds like a very limited government if not any government at all.
On the other hand he makes the argument that there is no religion, and no possessions which tends to be the position of a liberal left advocating that all things are owned by the government and produced under government dictation.
How would John Lennon handle this debt crisis? Would he hold a charity concert and donate the proceeds to the national budget? Would he like to see the government stop? While you are pondering a world where John Lennon might be president, watch the video of the song and think... was John Lennon right or wrong about the way society can achieve its goals?
