“Get Up, Stand Up”

~ Peter Tosh

“The dispassionate, postmodern, cool man is the antithesis of the phallic male – no passion, no standing forth, no risk, no eros, no drive to survive and enrich history. Nor is the ‘new age’ man who is self-absorbed in his own feelings and committed to ‘personal growth’ a candidate for heroism… Our loss has been ontological, not psychological. A deficiency in meaning and in being. A refusal to care for what matters, a limpness in the face of the challenge of our history. The challenges seem overwhelming, and we are understandably tempted to retreat into professions and corporations that swallow us, into private pleasures and high consumption. But let’s call that what it is: moral cowardice, abdication of responsibility, voluntary myopia. And if we continue on this path we will continue to feel empty and devoid of meaning.”
