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

"Little Fighter" by White Lion, album: Big Game (1989)

are you cryin' tonight, are you
feelin' alright
i'll tell the world that you are,
down on yourluck, you were
one of the kind
one who'd never give in
even when they put a price on your head

has anyone heard the tales you tell
or seen the scars you wear
did anyone speak up when you fell
does anybody care

rise again little fighter
and let the world know the reason why
shine again little fighter
and don't let 'em end the things you do

and you were one with a cause,
and a reason to be
you were a fighter for peace
on this earth
and you were never afraid
you put your life on the line
and you were always alone
out on the sea

without a weapon in your hand
you came to fight a war
they took your life, but didn't know
that you would never die

rise again little fighter
and let the world know the reason why
shine again little fighter
and don't let 'em end the things you do

are you feelin' alright
cause i care

rise again little fighter
and let the world know the reason why
shine again little fighter
and don't let 'em end the things you do

rise again little fighter
and let the world know the reason why
shine again little fighter
and don't let 'em end the things you do


We read in wikipedia:

The song is about a Greenpeace boat named "Rainbow Warrior" which was illegally destroyed by the French. Inside the Big Game album booklet, where the Little Fighter lyrics are it says "In Memory of Rainbow Warrior" in brackets next to the name.

Unlike most bands of their genre, White Lion recorded occasional songs that addressed social or political issues such as apartheid ("Cry for Freedom") and the effect of divorce on children ("Broken Home"). The song "Little Fighter" was about the Rainbow Warrior, a ship owned by the environmental group Greenpeace that was destroyed by operatives of the French intelligence service. This concern for political and social
issues was also hinted at in the cover art to their album Big Game, which featured a lion's head hidden in tall grass with the White House in the background.
