So here we are, once again celebrating July 4th/Independence Day USA ... which raises the question: So then what are all the other days?
Yes, well, I do co-sign the proposition that you won't long enjoy any freedom you are not prepared to defend. That doesn't make me a 2nd Amendment freak, just someone who keeps an eye on how the prevailing social currents, local and worldwide, affect my personal independence.
And of course one of the foundational attributes of dub reggae, along with all the urgings to Legalize It, is calling out oppression, injustice, and hypocrisy. And so we come full circle, to this little homemade broadside full of the same kind of dangerous ideas that bought our independence: Samizdat dub. Give a copy to your friends.
