In honor of the…

In honor of the lighting of the Imagine Peace Tower tomorrow, I have to say the thing that most annoys me about the way so many people react to Imagine is that they mistake it as a song asking people to give up their possessions, politics, or religion. It’s not asking you to do that. It’s pointing out that if we stopped getting so hung up on possessions, politics, and religion we might actually get along a lot more often.

Ironically enough, though, so many people use Imagine as an excuse to get hung up on arguing about politics, religion, and possessions.

You know what I mean?
