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

“Ο ΚΑΚΟΣ ΣΟΥ ΕΑΥΤΟΣ” από Αρνάκια, album: Στο στόμα του λύκου, "Your Evil Self" by Little Lambs, album: In wolf's mouth (1993)

Οταν οι γνώμες των άλλων σ' εξοργίζουν
κι όταν οι αρχές σου τη βία υποστηρίζουν
για ποιόν αγώνα λοιπόν θα ξεκινήσεις
με ποιόν εχθρό θα χτυπηθείς.

Κι αν θελήσεις κάποτε ν' αλλάξεις την ζωή σου
πρέπει να διώξεις το κακό που τρώει την ψυχή σου
γιατί δεν φτάνει μονάχα να γκρεμίζεις
ο κακός σου εαυτός καραδοκεί.

σκότωσε τον μπάτσο που έχεις μέσα σου
σκότωσε τον μπάτσο πριν είναι αργά

Κι όταν χρειαστείς κουράγιο μην τρομάξεις
σκέψου πως δεν έχεις τίποτα να χάσεις
πρέπει την μάχη αυτή να την κερδίσεις
είναι καιρός για αλλαγή.


When other’s opinions makes you angry
When your principles support violence
What kind of struggle you’re gonna start
Which enemy you’re gonna strike

And if you want to change your life someday
You must throw away the evil that eats your soul
‘cause it’s not enough only to destruct
Your evil self lurks

Kill your cop inside you
Kill him before its too late

And when you’ll need courage don’t be panic
Think you have nothing to lose
You must earn this fight
It’s time for change

Kill your cop inside you
Kill him before its too late

These lyrics must be taken deeply into account by any social movement that fights for a better society. First of all we must reject our violent ego that reproduces violence in a vicious circle, undermining any social victory against a totalitarian state or exploitative system. When you cut a tree branch to make a war club, then you don’t expect from it to become a green tree again.

Ghandi, M.L.King succeed much more things than any bloody revolution that turned to be a more violent authority than the overthrown regime. Zapatistas succeeded not by the use of their weapons, but by their gradually minimized use in favour of creation of supporting social nets all over the world and by non violent actions that, as it has been stated, “throw more ink than bullets”.

This song is topical today in our country that is suffering an uprising of social and state violence, after the tragic events of late December caused by the murder of a child by a policeman. Many assasinations and attacks against police took place after that event that have nothing to do with social upheavals, offering an excuse to the totalitarian and highly corrupted greek government to release extreme police violence against social activists, immigrants and political refugees and to proceed to restrictions of human rights especially during demonstrations, communications and internet use.

Nice, on times like this music it's based on reality in all ways, love, war, death, money, sacrifice, many people like to listen music and I don't know that many people don't realize about they selves and try to change.
Thanks for sharing, excellent post.
