Do You See?

>My Favorite Quotes:

— Ne me libère pas, je m’en charge.– graffiti à Nanterre, mai ’68

— “The development of Modern Industry, … , cuts from under its feet the very foundation on which the bourgeoisie produces and appropriates products. What the bourgeoisie therefore produces, above all, are its own grave-diggers. Its fall and the victory of the proletariat are equally inevitable.” — Karl Marx

— A SONG: Hear it on:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ONEYGU_7EqU

Words and music by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1962 Schroder Music Company, renewed 1990. Pete Seeger made it famous (There’s a Spanish version “Las Casitas del Barrio Alto” – 1971, by the chilean songwriter Victor Jara, depicting in a mocking way the over-Europeanized and bourgeois lifestyle of the residents of the “Barrio Alto” in Santiago de Chile.)– I LOVE IT!

Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes made of ticky tacky,
Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes all the same.
There’s a green one and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one,
And they’re all made out of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same.
And the people in the houses
All went to the university,
Where they were put in boxes
And they came out all the same,
And there’s doctors and lawyers,
And business executives,
And they’re all made out of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same.
And they all play on the golf course
And drink their martinis dry,
And they all have pretty children
And the children go to school,
And the children go to summer camp
And then to the university,
Where they are put in boxes
And they come out all the same.
And the boys go into business
And marry and raise a family
In boxes made of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same.
There’s a green one and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one,
And they’re all made out of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same.
