My 14 year old son came home on Monday excited to show me his new favorite song on YouTube.com. It was by a group called the Flobots and it is a hip hop song called “HandleBars.” It would seem it’s been out for awhile and just hit the U.K. and Canada this past summer in a big way. I’m always interested to see where pop culture is at as art has a way of embedding the truth about our present state of minds within its fabric. So I sat down to hear the Flobots and see what Jordan’s enthusiasm was about. This is what I heard and saw:
It is fair to say that I loved it. I loved the lyrics, the feeling, the artistic rendering, and I loved the building towards the crescendo regarding the corruption of power we all know are the underpinnings of our governments and medical systems. I loved the reference to antibiotics, vaccines and the terror of living in a Holocaust. I love how the very few are starting to take on the many, armed with nothing but a very powerful dose of truth, in a slightly attenuated potency.
When I was researching the origin of the song, and the Flobots, I came across a blog where this wise individual wrote the following:
Hear hear – and I thank my son Jordan for pointing me to it as I know it only takes 10% of the population to create a revolution. If you’re ever looking for me, I’m amongst the health-care providers. I don’t use anti-biotics, but cure the underlying cause of disease on the basis of natural law without causing harm. I receive not an ounce of government support, however, I’m consulted by many different resonant Doctors who also want to serve their patients to the best of their ability, and I truly love my patients … oh, and I can still ride my bike with no handlebars!
