All You Need Is Love


The Beatles - All You Need Is Love

Some may find the world's problems a bit overwhelming.
Where do we even begin?
This group hates that group.
This person can't stand that person.

And what of war, and intolerance, and petty jealousy?

This song seems to have the answer, however, we need to define love in a way that doesn't result in violence, oppression, all the other evils that have been carried out in the name of God, and presumably love.

If we look at all the bloodshed, and havoc in this world today we see the genesis of all these events based in the opposite of concern for the welfare of our fellow man.

We've found many ways to justify this behavior; nationalism, capitalism, religion, ethnicity, race, gender, age, and even sexual orientation. We've use these tools to promote genocide, war, slavery, theft, torture, murder, rape, and a list of atrocities so long that only an evil madman could ever imagine.

Some say humanity is itself evil, and insane, while others blame individuals. No matter where we point the blame the truth is the responsibility for how this world works falls to us.



All You Need Is Love
.......The Beatles

Love, love, love.
Love, love, love.
Love, love, love.

There's nothing you can do that can't be done.
Nothing you can sing that can't be sung.
Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game.
It's easy.

Nothing you can make that can't be made.
No one you can save that can't be saved.
Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be you in time.
It's easy.

All you need is love.
All you need is love.
All you need is love, love.
Love is all you need.

All you need is love.
All you need is love.
All you need is love, love.
Love is all you need.

Nothing you can know that isn't known.
Nothing you can see that isn't shown.
Nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be.
It's easy.

All you need is love.
All you need is love.
All you need is love, love.
Love is all you need.

All you need is love (all together, now!)
All you need is love. (everybody!)
All you need is love, love.
Love is all you need (love is all you need).

Yee-hai!
Oh yeah!
She loves you, yeah yeah yeah.
She loves you, yeah yeah yeah.
