Interesting quote from Prague

Posted in Uncategorized by askguy on November 23, 2009

Josef Janicek, whose band Plastic People of the Universe, were partialy responsible for the Velvet Revolution and the ovethrow of communism in Czechoslovakia wote an interesting lyric I wanted to post related to the regression of the gocvernment. He wrote:

“They are afraid of he old people for their memories,

They are afraid of young people for their innocence.

They are afraid of typewriters.

So why are we afraid of them?”

What a great insight into repressive govenments and their fears?
