51. "For What Its Worth," tho, was an ANTI- counterculture

protest song, in that respect like the Beatles' great "Revolution." Those were my days. Both groups were smart guys who rejected radical destruction for its own sake.

… But when you talk about destruction
Don't you know that you can count me out
Don't you know it's gonna be
All right, all right, all right…


On the plus side, the old anti-war protests of my era had a huge effect. We still war, but now almost no one goes off to them. For better and worse...

I don't have a favorite protest song for this era. Democracy wasn't under huge attack in that one, but it is now and for me it's all about uniting to protect and fight the destroyers.

Speaking of, "This is America" is nice to dance to, but I'd never listened to the lyrics. Protest in this era is incredibly more, as people marching in over 700 cities showed. Good thing, because we're all in very grave danger from RW authoritarianism, though only Jews and a few other vulnerably small groups more than black people and few as much.
