¨A nation cannot become free and at the same time continue to oppress other nations. ¨ Engles
¨I came,I saw, I rejected.¨ David Perlman (Poppa Neutrino)
And it is not our object to destroy civilization. We do not desire to “divide up,” as people are in the habit of saying; we do not wish to throw humanity back into barbarism; on the contrary, we desire to lift the whole of humanity to the highest thinkable plane of civilization. We wish every individual without exception to have a share in the means of culture and education according to his capacities and his needs. This is the loftiest ideal that the human race can set before itself; and this ideal is possible today because it is only now that, in consequence of the thousands of years of progress towards civilization and of the tremendous acquisitions which man has gained in this age of culture; because only now are all the means and possibilities given through which we may realize this ideal condition in the way that the majority of men desire to realize it.
August Bebel, Socialism and the Student (1905)

- TV rots the senses in the head! It kills the imagination dead! It clogs and clutters up the mind! It makes a child so dull and blind. He can no longer understand a fantasy, A fairyland! His brain becomes as soft as cheese! His powers of thinking rust and freeze! An excerpt from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, By Roald Dahl, 1964

Have you heard what they listen to? And they call it music? Hmmm…
Yeah, I can’t hear all the lyrics but it must be something bad, right? Well, no, not always. A lot of it is a world that some of us only see on the news. Far removed from our clean and shiny lives, we don’t want to hear it. Yes, it has stuff I do not want to hear but for some people it is quite relevant stuff. But I am not asking anyone to listen to all of it.
I have heard this particular band a few times but never quite got their names. Junkyard Empire. They are relevant to all of us.
You think not? Then perhaps if you were to step outside your circumstances and look at others. We all live differently and not always is it easy to look at. The movement at hand will change things for all of us. What that change will look like remains to be seen.
Listen! Enjoy the poetry and the message.
I don’t listen to Rap but I think I am going to start. If you like it or want to explore more go to Junkyard Empire and listen to some. Use it as a unit study, it would include music appreciation/comparison, social studies, current events, video arts, poetry and rhythm. I am sure you could do more, dance for another.
Go for it! Be a HIP Homeschool Parent!
