Blowing In The Wind

video

How many roads must a man walk down,
before you call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove fly,
before she sleeps in the sand?
And how many times must a cannon ball fly,
before they're forever banned?

The answer my friend is blowing in the wind,
the answer is blowing in the wind.

How many years can a mountain exist,
before it is washed to the sea?
How many years can some people exist,
before they're allowed to be free?
And how many times can a man turn his head,
and pretend that he just doesn't see?

The answer my friend is blowing in the wind,
the answer is blowing in the wind.

How many times must a man look up,
before he sees the sky?
And how many ears must one man have,
before he can hear people cry ?
And how many deaths will it take till we know,
that too many people have died?

The answer my friend is blowing in the wind,
the answer is blowing in the wind.

The answer my friend is blowing in the wind,
the answer is blowing in the wind.

Bob Dylan
A forma inteligente de manter as pessoas passivas e obedientes é limitar estritamente o espectro da opinião aceitável, mas estimular muito intensamente o debate dentro daquele espectro… Isto dá às pessoas a sensação de que o livre pensamento está pujante, e ao mesmo tempo os pressupostos do sistema são reforçados através desses limites impostos à amplitude do debate.
