Hippie Hypocrites

While were speaking here about entertainers, here's something to chew on:

  • How could Donovan have written both Universal Soldier and Remember the Alamo? The themes of the two songs are absolutely irreconciable! Compare

    Fear not little darling of dying
    If this world be sovereign and free
    For we'll fight to the last for as long as liberty be


    And without him, how would Hitler
    kill the people at Dachau,
    without him Cesar would have stood alone,
    he's the one, who gives his body
    as a weapon of the war,
    and without him always killing cant go on.

    He's the universal soldier,
    and he really is to blame,
    his orders came from far away, no more,
    they came from here and there,
    and you and me ain't brothers,
    can't you see,
    this is not the way we put an end to war.

    Then again, the sixties were a murky time. Perhaps there were several Donovans? A J-source and Q-source Donovan?

  • Also, if John Lennon was such a commie, then why the hell was he complaining so much about the Tax Man, or why does he want money so much, even though money can't buy him love?
