John Lennon's 70th Birthday

Did you guys notice? Today was John Lennon's birthday.
My thoughts about John Lennon is this:
He was a very determined and loving individual that believed in love and peace and wasn't afraid to live by it on a daily basis even if the rest of the world looked the other way if not oppose it.
And of course you can't forget the period of time he spent with his fellow Beatles.
Oh how he and their music will be never forgotten.
I can really relate to John Lennon, since he had a very rebellious attitude towards life.
Lennon revealed a rebellious nature and acerbic wit in his music, his writing, on film, and in interviews, and became controversial through his work as a peace activist. He moved to New York City in 1971, where his criticism of the Vietnam War resulted in a lengthy attempt by Richard Nixon's administration to deport him, while his songs were adapted as anthems by the anti-war movement. Disengaging himself from the music business in 1975 to devote time to his family, Lennon reemerged in 1980 with a comeback album, Double Fantasy, but was murdered three weeks after its release.
 

He scared the shit out of people with power.

What is your take on John Lennon or the Peace movement?

Do you believe in peace through isolating ourselves or peace through military strength?

  2. Don't really know too much about him. I do feel as if most people who could be defined as "hippies" have a very biased outlook on things. War will always be a part of us. Some people may know peace and everyone with a heart will desire it, but there's always going to be people out there who want to destroy it.

  9. The military force doesn't bring peace, honestly I don't think many people now a days are actually trying to just have peace, though thast the way I would like it and I'm sure other people feel the same way

  12. I knew it was his birthday yesterday because EVERY radio station in my town was only playing Lennon.

    I agree with The Situation to some extent. We'll never know peace as a species, I don't think. Sure, there's always gonna be a lot of peace-loving people who have a good attitude and love their fellow man. All it takes, though, is a tiny number of people to try to kill other people, and then we no longer have peace.

    RIP John.

  16. What's that old ironic statement? "Peace through superior firepower" or something? Where was that from?
