Global The Will of the People — A pretty good political song

A discussion of general or politics elsewhere in the world

...but an even better music video when combined with the lyrics.


Essentially, it's the mentality of I know what's best. What gets to me is the tearing down of statues, the rotation of power to power, and both sides knowing what's right for the people. This eventually leads to repeating history's mistake as history is forgotten when you tear down statues and get rid of past literature, which is essential so you don't repeat past errors as it has been shown that history does repeat itself.

This really hits the Red, White, and Blue if you are aware that the average lifespan of a civilization is 336 years, which is pretty close to the colonization of America (2020 - 1607 = 413). Though to be fair, beating the Redcoats was most likely the "flipping of a statue" (as seen in the music video) and we still have a good 92 years (1776 + 336 = 2112) before the United States' collapse; other nations around the world, on the brink or already happening.

Lyrics:
Tim Pool - The Will of the People (Lyrics) said:
Out on a march, in the morning

He called his soldiers down

To take aim at the traitors

To gun those rebels down

Now they’ll face the consequences they held themselves above;

This is the will of the people!

He said

«I wish I could spare them, make them see the path.»

«But tempting as that sounds, I’ll have to pass.»

«I know what’s needed for the good of my people

To save them.»

Out in the dark, without warning

He raised his fist above

Let a cry to his people

To tear those statues down

Now they’ll face the consequences they held themselves above;

This is the will of the people!

He said

«I wish I could spare them, make them see the path.»

«But tempting as that sounds, I’ll have to pass.»

«I know what’s needed for the good of my people

To save them.»

Now drop your arms and march for them

Face the wall, and bow your head

If you have any last words, let them be said

Out on a march, in the morning

He called his comrades down

To take aim at the traitors

To gun those fascists down

Now they’ll face the consequences they held themselves above;

This is the will of the people!

He said

«I wish I could spare them, make them see the path.»

«Blessed were those days we held in vein.»

«I’d give it up for a chance at redemption!»

As the cycle turns again

You’ve seen it before, now you’ll see it begin

But hate begets hate, the violence stirs again

You think it ends here? Just wait, my friend…

I truly believe all empires last less then 250 years. America now is at the threshold of political and peoples thinking of " Lets try something different".

That was what I was led to believe also.

I've always heard 250 years and have even seen it on memes because 2020 (present-day) - 1776 (founding of America) = 244 years, which means the next president's term ends on the brink of collapse (again, conspiracy as this is just a guess based upon past averages).

That said, I think our society is hopefully well equipped to work through our problems in a peaceful manner as war is very messy (depicted in the video) and if the global power does collapse, it's opportune for any nation to move on in as well.

The video and lyrics are kind of cool though as you see the transition of power from one side to another and it appears nothing ever really changes for the good in the end because they always revolt against the new system that they presumably set up themselves.
