Man in the Mirror - Michael Jackson (Bad;1987)
"Man in the Mirror" is a great message. I love that song. If John Lennon was alive, he could really relate to that song because it says that if you want to make the world a better place, you have to work on yourself and change first. It’s the same thing Kennedy was talking about when he said, "Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country." If you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make a change. Start with the man in the mirror. Start with yourself. Don’t be looking at all the other things. Start with you. That’s the truth. That’s what Martin Luther King meant and Gandhi too. That’s what I believe." Michael Jackson
The imprisonment of artists and the shutting down of galleries by government agents are incidents we associate with North Korea, Cuba, and Saudi Arabia, not a progressive Scandinavian democracy. And yet, in July of this year, an exhibition of the Swedish street artist Dan Park’s collages at the Rönnquist og Rönnquist gallery in Malmö was shut down by Swedish police for violating the racism paragraph of Swedish law.
Good! I said the same about Egyptian mysognist street artists…if your art is crap…don’t try to “media grab” by committing hate crimes, mysognistic crap to get media! That is soo pathetic! Zzzz get a life or get some talent and social critique in a way that has some IQ? www.ceciliayu.com
