In societies of fear, like ours, people are discouraged from speaking their minds openly least they be persecuted by those in power. Usually its the artists who represent the aspirations of the oppressed. They speak through their art, between the lines of their texts and through subliminal images which only those who have eyes to see and ears to hear behold!
Obama receiving the Nobel PEACE prize today makes him histories biggest hypocrite. If he would have been a man he would would have graciously declined until history proved himself a man of PEACE. The one thing he did prove however is that he is the second coming of George W. Bush who set the preemptive war strategy into motion; "let's murder everyone whom we fear before they get us!" Guess what folks? Bush is still in power. The abusive husband is getting ready to beat the hell out of his second wife (the first one, Iraq is unrecognizable). The new naive wife, Afghanistan is going to be beat to a pulp but of course she deserves it, cause it will bring PEACE to the home (world). Give me a break!
