Imagine

Last week, I presented Imagine which declares world pease. This time, I’d like to foucus on its lyrics.

The lyrics

Imagine there’s no heaven,
It’s easy if you try,
No hell below us,
Above us only sky,
Imagine all the people
living for today…

Imagine there’s no countries,
It isn’t hard to do,
Nothing to kill or die for,
No religion too,
Imagine all the people
living life in peace…

You may say I’m a dreamer,
but I’m not the only one,

I hope some day you’ll join us,
And the world will live as one.

Imagine no possessions,
I wonder if you can,
No need for greed or hunger,
A brotherhood of man,
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world…

You may say I’m a dreamer,
but I’m not the only one,
I hope some day you’ll join us,
And the world will live as one.

Some people say that Lennon is a communist. Why?  I inquired about it from this lyrics.

Frist, I thouht about what a communist is. Communists are people who have the idea of communism. Communism is a socioeconomic system structured upon common ownership of the means of production characterized by the absence of classes, money, and the state; as well as a social, political and ecomonic ideology and movement that aims to establish this social order.(WIKIPEDIA)

From this, you can understand why some people say that Lennon is a communist.

“Imagine there’s no countries” , ” No religion” and “Imagine there’s no possessions” are the example of that.

“No countries” means that all the people in the world live in one country regardress of different ethnics,religion and so on.

“No possesions” shows communism clearly.
