Eco-communities as a social vision

Eco-communities as a social vision
Egalitarian and ecological communities, like the pictured East Wind (www.eastwind.org), are very close to our vision of an ecological society

1984 by Spirit, 1969



1984
knockin' on your door
will you let it come
will you let it run your life

someone will be waiting for you at your door
when you get home tonight
ah yes he's gonna tell you darkness gives you much more
than you get from the light

classic plastic guards well they're your special friends
they see you every night
well they call themselves your brothers
but you know it's no game
you're never out of their sight

it's time you started thinking inside your head
that you should stand up and fight
oh where will you be when the freedom must end
just one year from tonight

classic plastic coppers are your special friends
they see you every night
well they call themselves protection
but they know it's no game
you're never out of their sight

I'm gonna run through the jungle
I'm not going to ever come back



a futuristic song, inspired by George Orwell’s 1984, about the consequences of the need for protection and security. The more protection the more loss of freedom. But the “need” for protection was the perfect excuse for freedom and human rights restrictions by authorities who also change or reverse the meaning of the words. We can see it today in the so-called war against terrorism, but under this pretext, the real enemies are the free citizens who struggle for a better way of living and for a healthy environment and against them are the new real terroristic laws and acts.

you can hear this song in you tube:
