A surprise Musical encounter.

As I was tuning in the good ol' YouTube for something to listen to, I encountered this sweet little tune. It was originally written by Timmy Thomas in 1972; but this cover by the immortal Sade is recognized as being the best one. It's called "Why can't we be together". The lyrics tell why I made an Essay out of it:


"Why Can't We Live Together"


Tell me why tell me why tell me why
Umm why can't we live together
Tell me why tell me
Umm why can't we live together
Everybody wants to live together
Why can't we be together


No more war no more war no more war
Umm just a little peace
No more war no more war all we want
Is some peace in this world


Everybody wants to live together
Why can't we be together


No matter no matter what color
Umm you are still my brother
I said no matter no matter what color
Umm you are still my brother


Everybody wants to live together
Why can't we be together


Everybody wants to live
Everybody's got to be together
Ooh everybody wants to live
Everybody's got to be together


Ooh Ooh laaa laa laa laa
Everybody's got to be together
Everybody wants to be together


I said no matter no matter what color
Umm you are still my brother
I said no matter no matter what color
You are still my brother


Everybody wants to live together
Why can't we be together


Gotta live together
Together!

Compare with:

"We Can Be Together"


We can be together
Ah you and me
We should be together
We are all outlaws in the eyes of America
In order to survive we steal cheat lie forge fred hide and deal
We are obscene lawless hideous dangerous dirty violent and young
But we should be together
Come on all you people standing around
Our life's too fine to let it die and
We can be together
All your private property is
Target for your enemy
And your enemy is
We
We are forces of chaos and anarchy
Everything they say we are we are
And we are very
Proud of ourselves
Up against the wall
Up against the wall fred (motherfucker)
Tear down the walls
Tear down the walls
Come on now together
Get it on together
Everybody together
We should be together
We should be together my friends
We can be together
We will be
We must begin here and now
A new continent of earth and fire
Come on now gettin higher and higher
Tear down the walls
Tear down the walls
Tear down the walls
Won't you try

It seems that just about everybody has "gotten the memo" except the 0.01%..... How are we to get them in on this, too? Or bring true peace to pass in their despite?

As Shakespeare put it, "that is the question" !! (Hamlet, Act III, Scene 1)

Poor and content is rich, and rich enough.

Othello, Act 3, Scene 3

It's a horrible game and the Leaderboards have far too many jerks on them. I say just find something that you love and that makes life better. For me, it's fighting for a good reason, rather than for the Empire.

I do not pretend I know what I do not know.

Is "Judo" a Zionist plot, or is it an antisemitic slur?
I mean, it has to be one or the other right?

The earth is a multibillion-year-old sphere.
The Nazis killed millions of Jews.
On 9/11/01 a Boeing 757 (AA77) flew into the Pentagon.
AGCC is happening.
If you cannot accept these facts, I cannot fake an interest in any of your opinions.

@UntimelyRippd You can tell because Putin publicly practices it.

Therefore, anybody who does Judo, or is interested in Tigers in any way (Which we know is actually a Chinese symbol, so they're in on it as well!) Is clearly a Russian Puppet who probably also is racist because they work for Trump.
