Neil Young Continues To Answer His Own Question Affirmatively + The BIG Shift
Earlier this Fall, Neil Young posed the following question on his official website asking "How hard should I try?". Certainly a thought provoking question for us all as we observe the ongoing chaos as "The BIG Shift" approaches (More on "The Big Shift", evolving awareness, mass consciousness, full disclosure and total transparency in comments below. Also, see The Illusion of The Matrix Shatters: Corruption, Fake News & The Big Shift.)
Naturally, most would like Neil to get back to the music -- an obviously valid suggestion.
But Neil has been answering his own question with ongoing messages, the latest of which was posted on Thanksgiving Day.
TodayTo which we say, "Go Neil." No Fear, No Shame. Once again, When Neil Young Speaks Truth To Power, The World Listens.
Today, I am thankful for all of the people world wide who work tirelessly for a good future on Planet Earth. And to my Canadian friends I say this, along with Elizabeth May:
STEPHEN HARPER IS NOT CANADA.
When he became Prime Minister, he cancelled all climate programmes, repudiated our Kyoto targets, chose far weaker targets, weakened them again, legally withdrew from the Kyoto Protocol, and then failed to meet the weaker targets.
Harper's Conservatives now compete with Australia's pro-coal government for the worst climate record in the industrialized world. As a result Canada's international reputation has been severely damaged, but I must emphasise again:
STEPHEN HARPER IS NOT CANADA.
80% of Canadians want climate action. 80% of Canadians continue to be very concerned about tackling the climate crisis. It is not too late -- Canada can be part of an international solution, we can repair our reputation on the world stage. We cannot give up on our own and our children's future with a collective shrug.
Please watch this.
Here's the video link of Neil Young titled "The Calgary Address 01.19.14". This is Neil Young unplugged. This is Neil speaking truth to power. Courageous statements on his opponent's own home field turf. Anyone who listens to this knows that Stephen Harper's days are numbered as Canada's Prime Minister:
Righteous. Or more succinctly, Neil Young: A Humanitarian Rebel With Causes.
So who else dedicates their entire official website page to an activist cause?
No one. Everyone else uses their front page to sell merchandise and simply provide relevant links to concert tours, etc.
Not Bob Dylan
Not Paul McCartney
Not Bruce Springsteen
Not The Rolling Stones
Not Lady Gaga
Not Taylor Swift
Not Kanye West
We challenge other artists to step up and prominently support something other than themselves. Go ahead. Put up a dedicated front page on a cause or action you support.
