culturehacks:

Wouldn’t it be neat
If the people you meet
Had shoes upon their feet
And something to eat?

And wouldn’t it be fine
If all human kind
Had shelter?

(Here comes the chorus, sing it with me, it goes:)

Basic human needs
Basic human deeds
Doing what comes naturally
Down in the garden
Where no one is apart
Deep down in the garden
The garden of your heart.

And wouldn ‘t it be grand
If we all lend a hand
So each one could stand
On a free piece of land?

And wouldn’t it be thrilling
If folks stopped their killing
And started in tilling

The land?

Chorus
No more churches
No more steeples
Good bye mirrors
Hello people

Helping people
Help yourself
And work out
Till the stars
Begin to shout
Oh thank God for something to do.

Chorus

And wouldn’t it be daring
If folks started sharing
Instead of comparing
What each other Was wearing?
And wouldn’t it be swell
If people didn’t sell
Their mother Earth.

Chorus

Wavy Gravy - “Basic Human Needs”

history meme | three inventions: electric light, nineteenth-twentieth century

The Edwardian era is described by one author as “the dawning of the age of material novelties, heard in the clatter of the telegraph, the jingle of the telephone and the cacophony of the first mass-produced typewriters, experienced in the eerie feeling of ascent on the first elevator rides, the dazzling aura of electric light, and the new, democratic mobility of the bicycle.”
