"Tom Morello on Writing Songs for Social Justice "
“In a preview clip from a Moyers & Company episode airing the weekend of May 18, musician and activist Tom Morello talks about “two Americas,” and his solidarity with “the voiceless, the poor, the wretched” across the world.
If my songs can give some hope to their struggle,” Morello tells Moyers, “That’s been a good day at work.”

Calling all Occupiers, Dissidents, Intelligent Activists, and Protestors who want to HELP CHANGE OUR WORLDS… here is another easy educational experience on TV via PBS [channel 50 or 58 or 28 'on air' channels [and others too] in Los Angeles] for you.
KPFK’s programmer Tom Morello from Rage Against the Machine will surely encourage and activate anyone listening with his energy, his enthusiasm and his persistent voice to be active and work for change = as he is calling all who love not only his music and exhortations but by his being a famous celebrity too makes many sleepyheads wake up to see and listen too. It is...Time to Act and Wake Up !!
Some people love to watch those who have ‘made it’ when they have not… or not yet…if ever.
If you want to see an encouraging video on line, or watch the TV program on a larger screen, and write your friends to “get educated finally !”, this IS a good time and a good conversation from which to learn more.
Morello has even come out to our Occupy Los Angeles downtown campgrounds and he has also appeared in many locations -eliciting not only applause for his talents. He encourages others to also be Brave and to Speak OUT. To not hide behind those common fears and inhibitions nor believe all those authoritarian daily threats. He shows his walk, plays his music, says it openly, clearly, with the gifts he has developed.
We must Use him as our own - a local example of what we too can do, similarly…with out own talents and energies.
SHOW UP, LISTEN IN, SEE IT ALL and be INVOLVED however when you can or dare.
And this is just a passive watching of a show of 2 men who speak ‘truth to the powers’ and dare come alive and spark the rest of the sit-down-viewers with their courage, Pay attention to their smart words and exciting thoughts.
May 18=20 , see your local PBS sites for a listing of times, often about 6:00 pm, and more repeats. check it out.
And then - write both of them with your thoughts, questions, concerns, and applause too. Because they NEED YOU as much as we all need these people who are willing to be good models for the rest of us - we who are not on screen, not on the radio, not famous, but still working just as hard as are they – tho maybe differently.
welcome to more Occupy !!! in all the shape-shifting-forms we take - in this ongoing Move-ment.
Moving in surprising ways to protest how we have become impoverished while we ‘hear’ repeatedly about the smoking-guns-stealing -corrupting-loopholing-taking-our- money for their faked purposes selfishly. We are being robbed by more than just 1% !
Too many are already ruining our lives and worlds - in their associated corruptive practices, in secretive unregulated financial centers, in colluding governments, and in unexpected businesses too. You know. You read. You learn.
Check this program out - and tell your friends and enemies to use this opportunity to hear Tom and Bill too. Just Do It !
