Subject: RE: Pete Seeger's FBI File
Love the post by Guest#. Hope he is correct.
Above or below the line? Pete was the creme de la creme of folk and of protestors and of politically active persons. A role model for all people in all times. Can anything about him go "below the line"? Without losing the wholeness of Pete and his music? Can we separate the earth from the sky?
His music came out of who he was and what he believed was a part of who he was. To be investigated by the FBI is a badge of honout, imo. I'll bet there are other musicians whose music has caused them to be investigated - because of their music. Hurray for them. Those who make every effort to get humans to THINK, must be applauded. We applaud their music because of what they have to say.
Who knows, maybe some in the FBI learned something by that lengthy investigation.
