Obama Inauguration Anthem (alternate)
Obama Inauguration Anthem (encore)
Should we embrace never-ending hope as promised by the government? Or should we pursue everlasting change as created by the people? Effective and lasting change can happen peacefully, but it begins with the people, not with the government. Joy in the world is possible. And peace in the world is possible. But it is only lasting when we approach it with eyes wide open, our ears clear and our minds and bodies free from the simmering pot of trance-inducing illusion and distraction that is so often created by the current system that we live in. Isn't it time to climb out of the box and out of the boiling pot of water...into a world of freedom, understanding and unlimited possibility?

"The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from all the oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just round the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power."
- George Orwell, 1984 -
