I LOVE music, especially when it has truths in it. Whether political or spiritual truths, music can speak to the heart, the spirit, and it can awaken people.
Music has been used for both good and evil throughout history. It is a weapon that people do not really think about. The lyrics set to a beat and a great tune can become the standards and truths that we start to live through the actions that we take. I think that we have to be careful about what we listen to. Music has been used to create violent thoughts, peace, love, and a variety of reactions, and really has shaped our society.
There are some songs that I think we should pay much more attention to, from a political activist standpoint. I am going to post a few of these. Perhaps tomorrow, I will go into some spiritual ones as well.
