The same topics he sang about in the 1970s are still issues today, war, disparities between the haves, the have nots and the races. The good people are allowing the self-centere d , self-serving , and self-aggrand i z i n g people to steer the course of our collective destiny...th e outcome if we continue will not be good, we can do better and must! Love this MG song, rest in peace big brother.

Amen it IS changing. People are waking up from the mesmerizing effects of mass communicatio n and the bombardment of false information being diseminados by the Gov't.

Marvin Gaye was alway "awake" and aware
A true inspiration to all of us who desire change: And Change We Must!! --Freedom fighter... We are Anon!!!

21wstegura You must be young! Yes, it is a Vietnam war protest song. There were many from that time frame. There was the Draft which everyone feared and dreaded and the war went on and on....was on TV 24/7. Started by LBJ (D) and ended by Nixon (R).
