Why is it that has been music artists continue to put their own interpretations on the Murican national anthem?

It should be sung consistently with gusto and a degree of solemnity imltho, not like a fucking rap tune.

Hell, I’m not Murican but even I stood when the star spangled banner was played when I was in Vegas many years ago.

The tune of the star spangled banner is actually an old English bar song "Hymn to Andronocles in Heaven" used to test the singer's lung power and ability to sing a long tune.

It's a failure only because in hind sight, it did fail. In theory it is near perfect but human nature fucked it up just like capitalism only less so. We are not all born equal, any idiot can see that. What we have agreed on is that if we accept everyone as equal (no not really equal, just having an equal share of opportunity, rights, justice etc.) and band together into large groups we can get more done. Any large group will condense all the power seekers who will gravitate to the top (remember we are not equal) and the sociopaths, well the ones that care enough, who are the best at climbing to the top get to rule us. The ones who care the least about us get to rule us, now how fucked up is that?

Religions, capitalism, Marxism, all are ideals and can never live up to their ideals. People are drawn to these ideals because of what they promise. In reality, its always about who controls the resources, money and power. Hence, north Korea. I see it more like a family business or the mafia. They are very quick to point out the reason why they suffer is because of the imperialistic USA but of course most of their suffering is the Kim dynasty and how it keeps its citizens in the dark. Very similar to religion, very controlling. Don't look at these as your savior, find your own way.

 

Idealist [Marksist]. " From each according to their ability, to each according to their needs."  The functional end of Socialism in the English colony of Virginia.  Thank God!  It was a disaster.  The diletants went off on their source of gold and the diletants depended on the lower classes to feed them.

 

Captain John Smith [a good name if you ask me] decreed "if you do not work, you do not feed" and put an end to this English nobility nonsense.

Other countries tend to be. As they should. Some go so far as civil war and upheaval of governments.

Like I said earlier. If you want total protection from this stuff you will have to give up some of your rights.
