'Go Down Moses'
Sung by Paul Robeson


'United Nations'
By Dimitri Shostakovich
Sung by Paul Robeson (1944)


U.S. House Committee
on Un-American Activities (HCUA)
Interrogates Paul Robeson (1956)


A fitting conclusion, Robeson calls the HCUA unamerican.

'Unfinished Instrumental'
By Parliament


This track by Eddie Hazel and Funkadelic brings to my mind the post-Civil War Reconstruction which ended in 1877 with a betrayal of the blacks and poor whites in the American South by the backstabbing Republican Party who conspired with the racist Confederate southern Democrats. This brings to mind the Stalinist doctrine of a future restitution in which the black and poor of the South take power including both autonomous sovereignty and the right to self determination (or secession) if they so chose - free from the local southern bourgeois oppressors & also free from colonialism and exploitation from the north - free from the power of the capitalist state in Washington, DC.

Just to be clear, you are all terrific, but everything you say is exactly what a moron would say.

No one infers a god from the simple, from the known, from what is understood, but from the complex, the unknown, and the incomprehensible. Our ignorance is God; what we know is science. Robert Green Ingersoll

'Spanish National Anthem'
(1932-1939)
Sung in German by Ernst Busch

A popular anti-fascist song of the 1930's & 1940's. 



EDIT:
At the right moment, this particular version of this tune can be a good one to really crank up the volume.
