THIS SONG IS A CRITIQUE OF THAT PRACTICE.

Some folks are born made to wave the flag,


Ooo, they’re red, white and blue.
And when the band plays hail to the chief,
Ooo, they point the cannon at you, y’all!

It ain’t me, it ain’t me, I ain’t no senator’s son, Son.


It ain’t me, it ain’t me; I ain’t no fortunate one. No.

Some folks are born silver spoon in hand,


Lord, don’t they help themselves, y’all!
But when the taxman comes to the door,
Lord, the house looks like a rummage sale.

It ain’t me, it ain’t me, I ain’t no millionaire’s son. No, no.


It ain’t me, it ain’t me; I ain’t no fortunate one. No.

And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?

Four dead in Ohio.

Source 6: MASTERS OF WAR BY BOB DYLAN

Document Note: Bob Dyaln was a prominent folk artist of the 1960s. This song was a scathing critique on the US involvement in the war in Vietnam. Bob Dylan was known for his protest songs and his association with the anti-war hippie movement.

Come you masters of war
You that build the big guns
You that build the death planes
You that build all the bombs
You that hide behind walls
You that hide behind desks
I just want you to know
I can see through your masks.

You that never done nothin'


But build to destroy
You play with my world
Like it's your little toy
You put a gun in my hand
And you hide from my eyes
And you turn and run farther
When the fast bullets fly.

Like Judas of old


You lie and deceive
A world war can be won
You want me to believe
But I see through your eyes
And I see through your brain
Like I see through the water
That runs down my drain.

You fasten all the triggers


For the others to fire
Then you set back and watch
When the death count gets higher
You hide in your mansion'
As young people's blood
Flows out of their bodies
And is buried in the mud.

You've thrown the worst fear


That can ever be hurled
Fear to bring children
Into the world
For threatening my baby
Unborn and unnamed
You ain't worth the blood
That runs in your veins.

How much do I know


To talk out of turn
You might say that I'm young
You might say I'm unlearned
But there's one thing I know
Though I'm younger than you
That even Jesus would never
Forgive what you do.

Let me ask you one question


Is your money that good
Will it buy you forgiveness
Do you think that it could
I think you will find
When your death takes its toll
All the money you made
Will never buy back your soul.

And I hope that you die


And your death'll come soon
I will follow your casket
In the pale afternoon
And I'll watch while you're lowered
Down to your deathbed
And I'll stand over your grave
'Til I'm sure that you're dead.


Source: Bob Dylan 1963.

Source 7: Richard Nixon quote

Document Note: Richard Nixon was president of the US from 1968-1972. He increased the extent to which the US was involved in the war, and he started the pullout from Vietnam as well. He was disliked by anti-war protesters and seen as a pro-war president.

The assertion that the Vietnam War was an immoral war was heard more and more often as the years dragged on.... Like all wars Vietnam was brutal, ugly, dangerous, painful, and sometimes inhumane. This was driven home to those who stayed home perhaps more forcefully than ever before because the war lasted so long and because they saw so much of it on television in living, dying color. They were right in saying that peace was better than war. But they were wrong in failing to ask themselves whether what was happening in Vietnam was substantively different from what had happened in other wars. Instead many of these naive; well-meaning, instinctual opponents of the war raised their voices in protest.
