having no possessions was probably a communist idea. We know how WELL that idea worked don't we? It destroyed Russia.
There is a line in "Imagine" (considered one of the best song in the history of rock/pop) that says:
"Imagine no possession..." He kind of glorify the idea about no possession and a world tat don't have any possessions is a world of peace. Isn't this pretty much what the Communist manifest says? I am not saying that Lennon was a Communist, but don't you think he was definitely to the left of the Democratic party?
He was also very early with the women liberation when writing Woman is the Ni**er of the World"... And "Power to the People" contains some lines that say:
"Say you want a revolution,
We better get on right away,
Well you get on your feet,
And out on the street."
"A million workers working for nothing,
You better give 'em what they really own,
We got to put you down,
When we come into town."
And I could go on with "Working Class heroe" and others, but let's keep it here...
Just thoughts since I am listening to one of his albums here and now...
