Last week Gal Gadot posted a video of herself along with a handful of other celebrities singing John Lennon's "Imagine."
On Monday, Larry the Cable Guy responded, calling the decision to sing that song, which yerns for a world without religion, among other things, to be in bad taste.
In such a world, without ultimate standards of right and wrong, what makes a so-called “brotherhood of man” or a “life in peace” any better than one of greed, or survival of the fittest? In fact, in such a world, why would a virus be any less valuable than a human? Why should we protect the lives of the elderly and frail instead of our economic bottom lines?
In other words, the imagined conditions of the song “Imagine” can never produce the imagined result of “Imagine.” And herein lies the problem with just about every utopian vision: They’re for a world that’s imaginary.
