This Land is Your Land, This Land is My Land

Here it is, the most subversive folksong ever written, by Woodie Guthrie, whose guitar bore the inscription, “This machine kills fascists.”

The most moving rendition of this song I ever heard is one I’ve never been able to find on YouTube, and that was by Peter, Paul and Mary, teaching it to an auditorium full of elementary school children. That was the most important lesson they’ve ever learned.

If that song still burns in their hearts, then the world may yet be a better place than it is today.
