Speaking of Woody Guthrie, the timeless words from the originally recorded 1944 version of Woody Guthrie's classic protest song resonate even louder today:
There was a big high wall there that tried to stop me /
Sign was painted, it said private property /
But on the back side it didn't say nothing /
This land was made for you and me.
This land is indeed our land - and no walls or signs can ever encircle or exclude us from the ideals that comprise it. To shield our people with medieval constructs can only serve to compromise who they are in the first place. Keep dreaming, keep marching, and keep trespassing through those barriers that would limit our fundamental American freedoms and humanities.
