Nothing intrinsically wrong with being a peasant. Peasants put the food we eat on our table. There are however a lot of problems with being ''doped'' (or unconscious) through tv, religion, sex, drugs, etc... So I understand his message.

'Imagine' was a much better approach though. It got everything across without offending the peasant class.

Would 'Serf' have been a better way to make the point?

A modern farmer is no peasant,
because a peasant is a term used
to describe the type of farmer
who just was just one step above a slave
during the feudalism systems of medieval
times. (not to be confused with the
food & entertainment serves medieval
times)

John is very English, and in England the
feudalism systems where very powerful and
are still part of the English heritage.
Therefore I do belief that your and Johns
vision on what a Peasants "is" might differ
causing this slight confusion.

I like this but I think it would be better not to exclude the word 'fucking'. It's an important part of the sentiment.

In all honesty, when I made this a few years ago, I copy - pasted the lyrics from site that chose not to include "fucking" and I didnt noticed it. It took me a total of +/- 5 minutes to make so thats why ;)

John was right. He also stated that in his other lovely work 'Imagine'. :nod:
I feel like the people who are complaining to you are blaming you for John's words. That's just odd. :x
If the world had no religion or tolerated each other's religions without hate, we wouldn't have much to fight about. Therefore there wouldn't be so much war or hate.
Make love, not war, right?

Nice work, Tom. John was a true master at symbolic meaning and poetic lyrics, wasn't he?


:peace:

I indeed (almost) never attack others with my words, but they still feel the need to defend their self, and attack me for some reason,.. weird folk.

You're welcome! :D
Yeah. I try not to insult people too. 'Cos I know how it feels to be insulted. Fighting words, or defense words, should be kept inside school debate teams. :B
Yep. Weird.

to me words are just words, no bad words, no fighting words just normal words it is the one who says them makes them good or bad
and I am neither a good nor a bed guy, so I always hope people understand and look at what I say under the words that I use

im like batman :P

I see what you mean. Like (this is a simple example), there could be two meanings to "I hate you"; if your best friend said it when they learned you did better than them on an exam, it wouldn't be the same as a Nazi telling a Jew the same.
I guess it also depends on the situation, huh?
Well, since you are neither, your words in certain situations could be thought of as either way, even if you don't mean it one way or the other. It's like "Just sayin'!"

Batman. Hee hee! :D
