War Against War selected
VC Reporter’s Art and Music Protest Project
The only antiwar song to make our list was
submitted by the band GraceGravity.
“War Against War” is a call to stop
all fighting and turn instead to
our compassionate natures.
“We have to go beyond the constraints on our consciousness that have been put in place by the media and government.” — Teri Hitt
Complaining may not be socially acceptable in these days of personal boundaries and manufactured enlightenment (unless it concerns cigarette smokers and taxes) but can anyone deny how much there is to bitch about? Our constitutional rights as Americans are eroding as quickly as our beaches, the middle class has all but vanished, habitable property sits vacant while the poor sleep in cars and under bridges (in the cities that will allow it) and yes, the rich are actually getting richer. We continue to sacrifice our kids for a war against a theoretical enemy.

Shared Sacrifice Internet Radio is co-hosted by Gary Barkley and Matt Stannard. Gary Barkley is an Iraq Vet who swore to uphold the US Constitution—and that did not end with his return from Iraq. Matt Stannard is an academic-activist, who believes that the status quo will not solve our problems. While the show is Progressive in nature, we take the approach that as Americans “The things that unite us are greater than the things that divide us.” America is facing a series of serious crises which threaten our survival as a nation. It will take all Americans to share the sacrifice to put us back on the road to shared prosperity. All American voices have a right to be heard, and every American must be ready to stand up and speak out in defense of this nation. America was founded by banding together as a nation, and now it will take nothing less than Shared Sacrifice to ensure our nation’s survival. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
