Sunday Evening Tunes: Sleep Now in the Fire




What's up, Lefties? We hope you're enjoying your weekend. Here's a little treat for you, brought to you by Rage Against the Machine (Directed by Michael Moore!). This is one of my favorite Rage videos, and covers some very pertinent topics in contemporary politics. Since financial regulation is something we ought to be talking about, I figured this video hits the spot. Consider also the fact that this video came from 2000. Bonus: note the reference to health care at 1:16.

Note: This video is NOT from YouTube, but from Dailymotion. YouTube, unfortunately, is turning into a dirty capitalist wasteland where every record company has the site by the balls. Take a look for yourself at how many videos have the message "embedding disabled by request" on their embed boxes now. I, for one, hope the online community sticks it to the companies and finds an alternative to get around this garbage. In the same way that music piracy has forced companies to become more innovative and competitive, giving the customers what they want, I would love to see the online community flip the bird to these schemes and let YouTube know we wont stand for this crap. In that light, enjoy this great video, which is embedded with all of my rage right now.
