Joe Strummer, Part 2
Joe Stummer, and the music he made has influenced my life in such a major way.
His quotes from interviews are beyond inspiring:
”The way you get a better world is, you don’t put up with substandard anything.”
“‘We’re all going to have to learn to live together and develop a greater tolerance and get rid off whatever our fathers gave us in the way of hatred between nations.”
About the continuing globalization of the world:
”We can at least be optimistic in (that) it forces the renegades and the underground to get it together.
The worse s–t gets, the more interesting the underground becomes. So I’m always quite hopeful. I believe in human beings. Human beings won’t let this happen.We won’t all end up robots working for McGiant Corp or whatever. It can’t happen.”
While online today, I stumbled across this video, filmed three blocks from my apartment in New York.
I wanted to share it with you.
