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 to 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 also 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 the last video to skip the beginning of the concert 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 56:45 onwards for the choral with German, English, and Spanish subtitles.

If your ideas of Reality and Truth mostly come from what you see on television and other mainstream media, read in newspapers, or from so-called "official sources", you have fallen for whatCarl SagancalledThe Bamboozle.
In this presentation, David Icke outlines in detail what The Bamboozle actually is.
When he first started speaking publicly about the totalitarian tiptoe 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 well-being 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 the categories, articles, and videos on my website. I don't want to say I told you so, but I did..
