Happy Christmas! War is over, if you want it.

Ironically, though, for all that Lennon was striving to be a voice for change, isn’t that sentiment only true for those who are basically happy with the status quo of the world?

The idea that world peace is simply a matter of everybody being happy with what they’ve already got could only be true if everyone were, in fact, happy with what they’ve got. Because if what it takes to make you happy is to have what someone else has who’s happy with it, well, that’s what war is all about, isn’t it?
