Thread Name: Sandman and Discussion of Dylan Songs
Subject: RE: Wiggle, Wiggle / Ballad in Plain D (Dylan)
The Sandman, the trouble I have with Masters of War is that it puts all the blame on weapons manufacturers and lets off individual responsibility.
It’s like blaming breweries for drunkenness.
One can say “No” to enlisting and being a lush, but this song allows one to blame some else rather than one’s self.
