Imagine

Imagine there's no heaven,
It's easy if you try,
No hell below us,
Above us only sky,
Imagine all the people
living for today...

Imagine there's no countries,
It isnt hard to do,
Nothing to kill or die for,
No religion too,
Imagine all the people
living life in peace...

Imagine no possesions,
I wonder if you can,
No need for greed or hunger,
A brotherhood of man,
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say Im a dreamer,
but Im not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one.

-John Lennon-

* Probably the best anti-war song ever written.

Can't quite imagine a world without property, not one that would be worth living in anyway...but I like his sentiments about no countries or religions! It's been my opinion that religion and gov't are directly or indirectly responsible for about 90% of the world's suffering.

But I'm kind of a stick in the mud that way.

This post is really good one....
if every individual can imagine and live the way like this...i mean at least TRY to live this way, there will be no more suffering in this third planet....


MAY THIS HAPPEN !

I don't think this song says anything about property - directly. It speaks about having no possesions. This would eliminate a majority of greed in the world. Idealistic.

i think what he ment by possesions and sharing is how to mutually use the abundant raw materials and such in the world. How people would stop hording certain materials.
