But that song is b.s. anyway. Its based on the typical left wing lack of understanding of spiritual people. "Imagine everyone living for today." Well, believe it or not that is what people are doing. You can blame them for being too lazy to solve all the world's problems but no one is sacrificing today for some religious based afterlife. Not really. It may have been that way in the days of absolute rule by the Roman Catholic Church for some but its not true in the 20th and 21st centuries. Christians want the world to be a better place now. The left does not seem to comprehend that and instead opt for fascism. Since the left went Joseph Stalin on us have people become happier? No, that's why BO's polls are dropping like a rock. People are suckers for being told what they want to hear and that is exactly what made John Lennon famous and BO president.
Oh yeah, how much does John Lennon effect the people of the world today compared to Jesus? Answer that one. Outside of some die hard fans and some of the generation who grew up with Lennon he's already been forgotten, as will MJ be. That's the lesson of fame. But Jesus will live on.

Your use of the word fascism, is clearly pejorative. Your comments are nothing more than mere right-wing rhetoric. Empty talk lacking any factual basis. Accusations and innuendos coming from someone besieged by our current administration. Signs or symptoms of fascism are: extreme nationalism (you're either with us or against us), the disdain of human rights, unprecedented secrecy, military supremacy over domestic needs, fraudulent elections, suppression of labor power and the protection and strengthening of corporate power, using religion to manipulate public opinion, controlled mass media, the use of torture, hatred of intellectuals and more. Any of this sound remotely familiar to you. Of course not. You keep your head where the sun doesn't shine. The only sucker here, is you. "Imagine there's no heaven, it's easy if you try".
