    The next big music video?

    Well,

    This is a showcase of a Seattle based crowd going musically globetrotting. I defy you to remain dry eyed. (I'm crying already).

    Yep, worked on me. Thanks.
    I wrote a blog.

    Economics puts parameters on people’s utopias. ~Peter Boettke
    The 'social contract' is to the politician what 'original sin' is to the priest. ~Don
    The vision of the helpful and protective state is the most pervasive and counter-productive ideology in the world today. ~Don
    The State represents violence in a concentrated and organized form. ~Mahatma Gandhi
    The executive of the modern state is nothing but a committee for managing the common affairs of the whole bourgeoisie.~Karl Marx

    I tend to blame the Feds for Don, actually.
    If they'd get it right, we wouldn't need Don pointing out that they'd gotten it wrong.

    I love this guy. What a life he's living! Travelling, meeting lots of people and dancing with them. What else does one want?

    Sad about the blurred faces in Damascus.

    I can only guess, but probably because dancing is frowned upon by extremists.

    Thank you for sharing! I'm going to go watch it a third time and share with my FB friends. I definitely teared up a bit, in a good way.

    Syria has strict modesty laws, which includes women wearing veils, long sleeves, and pants that go past the knee.

    That was awesome! Totally dug the "Temptation Walk" in Detroit—nice tribute to Motown.

    I thought no one could visit North Korea (?)

    That seal, sea otter, walrus, or whatever that was in San Diego was hilarious!

    Okay, I see. That's slightly better than what I was envisioning.... being arrested for dancing or some such.

    Yes!

    Even if people cannot communicate, through language, a single word to each other, we all have have two feet, two legs, two arms, two hands.... and one smile to share... to understand and to communicate the joy of movement... of being... of human-ness.

    I bought the music from amazon (it's a fabulous song) but the video is what makes me teary- and bleary-eyed.
