Whatever happened to dreamers? Oh yeah, they get killed.

Loretta Lux - The Boy (2001)

"Capitalism is always in danger of inspiring men to be more concerned about making a living than making a life. We are prone to judge success by the index of our salaries or the size of our automobiles, rather than by the quality of our service and relationship to humanity."

"The oppressor never voluntarily gives freedom to the oppressed. You have to work for it. Freedom is never given to anybody. Priviledged classes never give up their priviledges without strong resistance."

All I can find are terrible songs referencing Dr. King. In the spirit, here
is the WORST I could:

Mason Jennings - Dr. King [from I Think Washing Your Hands Is Stupid]

Mason Jennings is apparently horrible. The songs is constructed with an awkward Jesus reference and repeating "Alabama" - the only conent is a hook ripped from the visonary context of Dr. King. Why don't assasins choose to kill worthless people like this instead?

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. - Unjust Evil and Futile War

Haven't come across too many people who like, or have even heard of Mason Jennings.

Kind of a stretch to suggest he should be assassinated, just for not liking a song, but to each his own I guess...

Yeah, I agree I shouldn't be calling for assasinations. I just get angry on days such as these that it's the great people that are killed, not the mediocre ones.
