Like a bad sci-fi movie-view of a future world after the suicide of civilization.

Considering this display of pride, puissance, and artistic guile by Wu-Tang Clan, it is difficult to be optimistic in the last year of the first decade of this new millennium.

Af-clan-istan has shown every civilization in recorded history the power of a tribal system infected with corruption, ignorance, repression, and religion. Our current political, educational, and social infrastructure is not immune from these viral forces and will be hard pressed to fashion a culture where the mores expressed by this clan, and countless others, ain't nuthin.

I recognize that one man's terrorist is another's freedom fighter, but what is the freedom they espouse? To my ears, this Clan sounds just as unjust and offensive as the last Klan.

I've been waiting to get to a real computer (hard these days) that doesn't have one million filters (even harder) so I could watch that video.

I've never seen it, though I'm pretty familiar with the "music"

Scary, no? That these are today's millionaires? Role models?
