Eco-communities as a social vision

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

Revelation (Mother Earth) by Ozzy Osbourne , Album: Blizzard of Ozz, 1980

Mother please forgive them
For they know not what they do
Looking back in history's books
It seems it's nothing new
Oh! Let my mother live

Heaven is for heroes
And hell is full of fools
Stupidty, no will to live
They're breaking God's own rules
Please let my mother live

Father, of all creation
I think we're all going wrong
The course they're taking
Seems to be breaking
And it won't take too long

Children of the future
Watching empires fall
Sadness the cup they drink from
Self destruction the toll

I had a vision, I saw the world burn
And the seas had turned red
The sky had fallen, the final curtain
In the land of the dead

Mother, please show the children
Before it's too late
To fight each other, there's no one winning
We must fight all the hate

A strong concern about the future not only of mankind but of planet earth as a whole during the peak of Cold War and the frenzy of nuclear armament and the consequent nuclear threat. One of the most sensitive songs by an artist who became so controversial and inconsistent in his real life voting for Margaret Thatcher in 80s and supporting George Bush Junior in 00s, organizing concerts in American military camps in S. Korea.

You can hear this song in you tube:
