JOHN LENNON: Imagine
Musicians have always exploited Music as a means of propagating political ideas. Political ideologies are ingeniously diffused without the listener having to confirm affiliation. John Lennon was recognised as much as a 'thinker' as he was a musician. He was hailed by many, and still is, as a proponent of Democracy. Below is illustrated how John Lennon incorporated Marxist and communist ideologies into his music, in the famous single, Imagine.
1-Imagine that there was no heaven, it's easy if you try
2-No hell below us, above us only sky 2
3-Imagine all the people living for Today 3
4-Imagine there are no countries 4
5-It isn't hard to, nothing to kill or die for, and no religion too 5
Imagine all the people living in peace, Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can, no need for greed or hunger, a brotherhood of Man
6-Imagine all the people sharing all the world. 6
You may say that I am a dreamer, but I'm not the only one
7-I hope some day you'll join us when the world be as one. 7
1. The attack on Religion. Marxism propagates Religion as an obstacle toward economic prosperity. Russia was once the seat of the Muslims. Bukhara and Samarkand were the centers of Muslim learning and civilisation. Imam Bukhari was from Bukhara. Communism openly and systematically almost destroyed Islam. It is no coincidence that architectural designs within the former Soviet Union look like mosques. Thousands of mosques were destroyed. The Ulema (scholars) were persecuted, books were burnt. It is only after two decades of struggle and Jihad that the Soviet Union was tamed.
2. The belief that there is no Jannah (Heaven) or Jahannum (Hell), that there is no Aakirah (Hereafter).
3. The attack on 'self interest', the guiding principle of Western economies.
4. The attack on Nationalism. The idea of a world view, a one world government, a 'New World Order'.
5. Once again the attack on Religion. According to Lennon these ideas are not fantasy but are practically achievable.
6. The belief that everything belongs to the State. The abolition of private property, individuals should worship the state and recognise it as their 'Rabb' (sustainer).
7. A century after Marx's death, there were well over a billion persons who were at least nominally his followers. That fact led many communists to hope that the future might well see the eventual world triumph of Marxism.
