Musicians, politics and social movements ... is there a better way to go about changing the world?
It’s astonishing how much energy and careful thinking has been put into various projects set up by colleagues of mine through the years. It would be a false and inhuman reaction to capitulate about what we experience every day worldwide. That fact that people in the 21st century still die of hunger mirrors the brutal decadence of our global consciousness. All of us will get our payback cheque for this. Even if we call ourselves a society of individuals it’s absolutely clear that on a higher level of consciousness we all are one – no matter what contrary statements psychiatrists, scientists or politicians may come up with. I have nothing against the searching for the deepest hidden secrets of life, starting from the visible material all the way down to the atom as long as we recognize that it’s obvious that the gap between poverty and wealth will finally destroy the planet – our classroom.
