Don’t You Forget About Me (Simple Minds, lyrics in CC) – Lesson of Populism


Won’t you come see about me? I’ll be alone, dancing you know it baby Tell me your troubles and doubts Giving me everything inside and out and Love’s strange so real in the dark Think of the tender things that we were working on Slow change may pull us apart When the light gets into your heart, baby Don’t you, forget about me Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t Don’t you, forget about me Will you stand above me? Look my way, never love me Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling Down, down, down Will you recognize me? Call my name or walk on by Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling Down, down, down, down Don’t you try and pretend It’s my feeling we’ll win in the end I won’t harm you or touch your defenses Vanity and security Don’t you forget about me I’ll be alone, dancing you know it baby Going to take you apart I’ll put us back together at heart, baby Don’t you, forget about me Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t Don’t you, forget about me As you walk on by Will you call my name? As you walk on by Will you call my name? When you walk away Or will you walk away? Will you walk on by? Come on, call my name Will you call my name? I say
(Lala la la lala la la)

  1. So the problem is that the government doesn't take care of it's people, interesting, let's see where this "equitable" sharing of economic success was tried and compare:
    "The USSR, from 1917 to 1987, killed 61,911,000, and China, from 1949 to 1987 only, killed 76,702,000" … ops!

    You must be delusional if you think the conditions of living of the workers today is the same as in the 70's, the biggest growth in capitalism is the technological one. If you want to find nations where the conditions of living of the workers has really stopped in time, look at North Korea – and compare with South Korea (capitalism) – or look at Cuba. Cuba before the left took over, in the 50's, had a GDP per capita higher than many European countries, such as Italy; Cuba was 5º place in number of televisions per capita; Cuba was 1º place in telephones per capita among Latin American nations, now it's 16º place (out of 20); Cuba went from being the pearl of Latin America, to being the place where people risk their lives swimming to get out from.

    It's funny how the left has been in power for decades around the world, but they still blame the "evil capitalists" for all their problems.

  2. "Populism" is also one of the favorites accusations launched by some cynical leaders to discredit any opposition. Populism means people, and people need more social justice.

  3. See "Inequality For All" documentary for a more in depth study on the parallels between the current and a previous era – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8swuwO_E8U

  4. Atheos Nous, I've analyzed our situation, and I think ever since the 1930's or so, we have been overpopulated. I think overpopulation is the cause of most wars. Not politicals. Look, we do it all as a race, all As One, we're self-destructive.

  5. For me, it is just my opinion, may be I am right, may be I am wrong but I think it is the fault to our political leaders and big companies who do not care about of their people and employees because they put forward their interest while those of others.

    And after, they use migrants and poor people like scapegoat.
