This Machine Kills Fascists!

Happy 4th Of July, America. This is a 1945 film of Woody Guthrie performing his simple but eternal anthem for a country that existed as an ideal, a nation built on dreams...
This Land Is My Land, This Land Is Your Land!
Will that dream ever be realized?
Will the ideal ever become perfected in the flesh?

Woody Guthrie inscibed the words on his guitar, This Machine Kills Fascists!
Do you think he could even get it past airport security today?
Do you think he would even be allowed to board a plane?

This land was made for you and me.........................
