GUEST,Frank Hamilton Ewan MacColl ...Folk Friend Or Foe? (182* d) RE: Ewan MacColl ...Folk Friend Or Foe? 08 Jul 06


My respect goes up for AWOL MacColl. Attempting to indoctrinate? How 'bout just expressing what you believe? Ewan did a great service doing just that.

"Attempting to indoctrinate" is the business of American mainstream corporate media.

Good on Ewan for taking a courageous stand. The MP's dragging him out of singing sessions is comparable to what death squads do in dicatatorial countries.

They cut off Victor Jara's hands for singing songs of the Nueva Cancion.

Ewan is to be admired because he had the temerity to stand for something.

Only dictators try to squelch free speech. But the songs live.
