I have tremendous respect for Lennon, and everyone knows how much the US government fucked with him in the 70s...but he was no Gandhi, or Che, or MLK. He was a social revolutionary in the same way that Bob Marley was. He spread a revolutionary message in his art, but he wasn't really 'on the front lines' fighting for change. If I'm incorrect or ignorant of some facts, let me know.

Peace to Mr. Diggs.
Spot on!

Being from John Lennons city (Liverpool) i vcan vouch for how much of an idol he is
