Interesting song choice don't you think?
'Power to the people', as a slogan, has been used in the past in support of Socialism as much as Capitalism.

Depends on one's mood at the time I suppose.

Cheers.

@Angry - if the music was the only thing you chose to focus on it's a very sad sad statement. :(

The music, like the images, is meant to be an integral part of the message of this video. The images, no doubt chosen after much consideration, are clearly articulating a particular viewpoint. The music, however, is a very ambiguous slogan by virtue of its past associations and only serves to undermine the statement being made by the images. The message, to my mind at least, is weakened by such a choice.

Therefore, "Interesting song choice don't you think?"Unless of course you don't consider the choice of music to be an important part of the message.

Cheers.
