Ode To Joy, the choral part of the fourth and final movement of Beethoven’s 9th symphony is my favorite piece of classical music. Bar none. It’s not just a tribute to Joy but also to Brotherhood, Love, Nature and Freedom, which is why I think it’s particularly relevant for the world today.
Over the years, Beethoven’s Ode to Joy has remained a protest anthem and a celebration of music. Demonstrators in Chile sang the piece during demonstrations against the Pinochet dictatorship, and Chinese students broadcast it at Tiananmen Square. It was performed (conducted by Leonard Bernstein) on Christmas day after the fall of the Berlin Wall replacing “Freude” (joy) with “Freiheit” (freedom), and at Daiku (Number Nine) concerts in Japan every December and after the 2011 tsunami. (see Ode To Joy)
I already posted the first clip in another article in 2014 as an example of how the power of music can bring people together. In this article I added a video about Beethoven’s 9th as a symbol of Freedom, and the concert so you can read the words that are in the choral. I realize that classical music isn’t for everyone :), so you can jump to 55:05 in that video to skip the beginning and jump to the choral. I promise you goosebumps! and maybe even a tear or two.. (unless you’re soulless, in which case you shouldn’t even be on my website)
In the video below you will see that Ode To Joy was what I would call ‘hijacked’ by the European Union, which I think is a disgrace (and probably not something Beethoven would have agreed with, as with the use of it by the Nazis), but that doesn’t take anything away from his genius of course.
Watch from 55:05 onwards for the choral with English subtitles.

Never forget that you were Born to Be Alive. Not to "self-quarantine indefinitely", practice "social distancing", or to be turned into a biorobot due to a mass psychosis over an imaginary bug.
You'll have plenty of time to quarantine and socially distance yourself when you're dead. Life Has To Be Lived!

If your ideas of Reality and Truth mostly come from what you see on television, or read in newspapers and other mainstream media, or so called "official sources", you have fallen for what Carl Sagan called The Bamboozle.
In this presentation David Icke outlines in detail what The Bamboozle actually is.
When he first started speaking publicly about the totalitarian tip toe and other far more esoteric subjects 30 years or so ago, there were barely a handful of people who came to his lectures and he was endlessly ridiculed. And now, much of what he and other researchers like Jordan Maxwell tried to warn humanity about has come to pass. Worldwide people have gained interest in David Icke's work, which is why he has sold out Wembley Arena and other such venues around the world on multiple occasions.
If you want to understand why the world and your life seem upside down and inside out as a result of the Corona Virus Insanity watch this presentation. This manufactured crisis really is a turning point in humanity's evolution and it will end in only 1 of 2 ways, a more enlightened state of being, or irreversible loss of wellbeing and personal freedoms. This is not an exaggeration. Look around you and decide what you will choose.
A word of caution: the topics covered in this presentation can either be too fantastical, incomprehensible or (just) very challenging for people who are new to this kind of information. My advice: take away from it what you find interesting, skip what you can't handle, and most of all, don't take anyone's word for anything – do your OWN research.
What you need to realize is that the world hasn't suddenly gone bat-sh*t-crazy. The insanity has been here for hundreds of years, but it's coming to the surface now. It isn't new to the world, it's new to YOU. Just browse through to the categories, articles and videos on my website. I don't want to say I told you so, but I did..
David Icke interview about the corona virus – One To Watch
People who are already well informed and well versed in Hidden History know that there were many forces behind, and reasons for, the creation of Adolf Hitler. So although the title of this documentary is "How Europe Created Adolf Hitler" it doesn't quite cover the entire Hitler backstory.
I'm posting the documentary because it consists entirely of archival footage, that shows extremely well how demagogues and dictators, in this case Hitler, attract their followers by creating and playing into people's fears, and presenting themselves as "the solution" to every conceivable socio-political and economic problem.
In my opinion it is highly valuable to compare the images and rhetoric that are shown to those of modern day political campaigns and political rallies around the world.
Notice the similarities, especially with regard to the upcoming US presidential elections. (for more, see the playlist in this article)
The history that you have forgotten has never been more relevant.
