WARNING IT'S ANOTHER SEMI POLITICAL RANT MIXED WITH A LOVE OF MUSIC
I have found a new reason to love The Used aside from their awesome music. In the centre of their cd cover booklet there is 3 short essays covering their opinion on the American war on terror, drugs and poverty. It was very thought provoking and well written and like any good essay has actual facts. Also made me realize that we are living in a time of change. A time when the whole world is starting to go "Wait this is wrong." I am finding especially people in my age group are less likely to turn a blind eye to the injustices of the world. Perhaps it is because of growing up with bands like Billy Talent and The Used that likes to call out such issues but whatever it is I am thankful it's finally come to pass. It's finally become the time where the whole world is starting to take a stand against what is unjust. I mean we only have to look as far back as the last Olympics to see the world coming together to revolt against Russia's unjust ant gay laws. The fact that during the many natural disasters that plagued even the US the past few years the whole world banded together. Then we were finally one species. We were truly human in those moments. Perhaps they reminded us that we are all one species in the world despite how powerful but all the same, it's moments when the world bands together as one that really makes me happy to be apart of this life and this time.
