The Whole World is Watching.
The Video is in 5 Acts, that describe my journey to founding the Tea Party Movement. Yes you heard me right. I founded the Tea Parties, no need to thank me I am just one of thousands that founded the Tea Party.
Act 1 is a poem read by Robert Lamm of the band Chicago. The title of the poem is "When All the Laughter Dies in Sorrow", by Kendrew Lascelles. Mr. Lascelles is best know for his poem The Box, which was performed by John Denver on his album "Poems and Prayers and Promises"
When All the Laughter Dies in Sorrow, suggests that the Human Race is being observed by some "Greater Thinking Thing" and our activities though important to humans, has little effect on this "Greater Thinking Thing".
In the last line the poet asks the question "Do you think that a greater thinking thing, will give a damn that man was here"? You can read the full poem on my blog listed above.
Act 2. Is a short description of my journey to understanding my political beliefs and the documents that created our nation. The song is "Cantus in Memory of Benjamin Britten", by Arvo Parte. Mr. Parte best known for his sacred music. I selected this particular piece due to its somber mood and use of the church bell at the beginning. The bell is heard throughout the piece. It signifies the loud and sustained sound of Liberty.
Act 3 Is how I viewed my country during my service in the Military. We provided many inventions, as well as, examples to the world about what Freedom means. We used our might to free Europe from its self-created hell, and provide, free of charge, our resources to the poor and those who suffered during times of disaster. We are a loving nation. Often while being derided by those we helped. The song "Bourree" is a dance of French origin...it is very carefree and uplifting type of melody. This particular version is inspired by J.S. Bach's Bourree in E minor, and performed by the band Jethro Tull.
Act 4 Is what I call the "Great Awakening Part 2". This is the political awakening of the American people. Not just the Right, but for the Left as well. The protagonists in this are Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid. They represent the forces that are attempting to usurp the Constitution. Arguably President Obama should share this designation as well, however, I see President Obama as not being smart enough to pose much of a danger on his own.
The song "Some Day" by the band Chicago is a great choice. Created while they were doing protest songs it uses the chant "The Whole World is Watching" taken from the protests held during the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. I got the idea from a video here in Florida when a group of protesters at a county meeting were kicked out...they began chanting "We Will Be Heard". Oh Yes they will be. In the song the singer asks "Do you know what I mean?" then after asking the listener to look around he says "Now you know what I mean."
Act 5 is where the question from Act 1 is answered. "Do you think that a Greater thinking thing, Will give a damn that Man was here"? You will have to watch it for the answer.
