interview - materialism and limits

"Do you think we should have any limits to materialism? Some people are very rich and some are very poor!"
"I do think that the government should have more interest in the people who don't have than in the people who have. And the people should rebel! You know, they should revolt and you know boycott work, not go to the farm and working."
Listen to Al Anderson! (110 K)

"But that's kind of hard when you've got four, five kids and you can't really do anything about stopping work, because if you even try you will lose your job!"
Listen to Al Anderson! (80 K)

"Do you think the music of Bob Marley and the Wailers has any influence on the peoples' minds?"
"Oh, it has! It definitely has. Because , you know,- there's a lot of soldiers that before they go to battle they listen to Bob's music and they get security from it and there's a lot of politicians that have changed their views through the lyrical content of what Bob was saying about people who don't have."
Listen to Al Anderson! (190 K)

"A lot of things have to be changed! Everywhere! From the most powerful countries to the least powerful countries. All the Third World Countries need change!"
