1. That song always gives me chills.

Especially the line about "hate your next door neighbor, but don't forget to say grace".

3. It's amazing how little things have changed over the last fifty years

And discouraging.

This video is particularly chilling with the images paired with the music. I almost put a warning on the message for those who could be triggered by them.

4. Some of the most quietly profound lyrics in the history of rock.

 

Think of all the hate there is in Red China!
Then take a look around to Selma, Alabama!
Ah, you may leave here, for four days in space,
But when your return, it's the same old place.

A simple and devastating condemnation.
