At the end of the day …. War, what is it good for?


Peace

~~July 17, 2014~~

War is an organized and often prolonged conflict that is carried out by states or non-state actors. It is generally characterized by extreme violence, social disruption and economic destruction. War should be understood as an actual, intentional and widespread armed conflict between political communities, and therefore is defined as a form of political violence or intervention. The set of techniques used by a group to carry out war is known as warfare. An absence of war is usually called peace.

While some scholars see warfare as an inescapable and integral aspect of human nature, others argue that it is only inevitable under certain socio-cultural or ecological circumstances. For some the practice of war is not linked to any single type of political organization or society.

Rather, as discussed by John Keegan in his A History of Warfare, war is a universal phenomenon whose form and scope is defined by the society that wages it. Another argument suggests that since there are human societies in which warfare does not exist, humans may not be naturally disposed for warfare, which emerges under particular circumstances.

War, huh yeah
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing, oh hoh, oh
War huh yeah
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing, say it again y’all
War, huh good God
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing, listen to me
John

Peace is an occurrence of harmony characterized by lack of violence, conflict behaviors and the freedom from fear of violence. Commonly understood as the absence of hostility and retribution, peace also suggests sincere attempts at reconciliation, the existence of healthy or newly healed interpersonal or international relationships, prosperity in matters of social or economic welfare, the establishment of equality, and a working political order that serves the true interests of all.Peace2

Give Peace a Chance by John Lennon

Imagine

Imagine …. Almost everywhere we look in the world, there’s a state of turmoil. Abuse, oppression, inequality, disregard for basic human rights, persecution, segregation. There is the permeating thought that we have to defend what is ours against enemies, foreign and domestic. We have forgotten the golden rule: do onto others

We fight for land, for resources, for oil, for profit, for religion. We are stubborn. We are right. There is no other way but ours. There’s no giving an inch, no compromise.

Just imagine if it were different … 

 Imagine2

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today …

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world …

Imagine – Playing For Change

~~Uploaded on Jan 6, 2011~~

In the beginning of 2010 the Playing For Change crew began work on a new Song Around the World, John Lennon’s “Imagine.” It has been an amazing year of production, taking the crew from the favelas of Brazil to the shrines of southern India, from villages in Nepal to the glittering urban landscape of Tokyo and New York, and beyond.

This song is the Playing For Change Foundation’s gift to the world. The Playing For Change Foundation feels honored to have the blessing and generous support of Yoko Ono as music lovers around the world join together to launch the Power to the People campaign.

The campaign seeks to advance John Lennon’s vision of peace by engaging artists and audiences to contribute to music education programs worldwide. Proceeds raised will help build music schools, support teachers and music programs, purchase instruments, and connect schools for cross-cultural learning and conflict resolution across borders.

Music IS the power: Power to the People.

-Michael Jackson Hologram Rocks Billboard Music Awards-

The late Michael Jackson steals the show at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, held on Sunday, May 17, 2014, with a computer-generated hologram performance

The Michael Jackson performance on the 2014 Billboard Music Awards was the result of nearly half a year of planning, choreography and filming, not to mention the development of new technology.

Producers of the Billboard Music Awards did not see even a portion of the film until eight days before the broadcast.

The King of Pop is back in the spotlight.

The spectral Jackson performed “Slave to the Rhythm,” one of the singles from “Xscape,” a new album of posthumously released Jackson music.

He was accompanied by actual, physically present dancers.

Although there were nearly 20 A-list performances at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, it was the late Michael Jackson who garnered the biggest cheer of the evening at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

A computer-generated performance of the King of Pop dancing and singing a new song, Slave to the Rhythm, off his posthumous album Xscape prompted an emotional standing ovation from the crowd.

Xscape, released on May 2, features eight previously unreleased songs from Jackson that were recorded between 1983 and 1999.

Jackson, one of the most influential artists in music, having sold 1 billion records worldwide, died in 2009 at age 50 in Los Angeles from an overdose of the anaesthetic Propofol.
