Gisela May singt Brecht — YouTube video
Am Grunde der Moldau wandern die Steine,
es liegen drei Kaiser begraben in Prag.
Das Grosse bleibt gross nicht und klein nicht das Kleine.
Die Nacht hat zwölf Stunden, dann kommt schon der Tag.
Es wechseln die Zeiten. Die riesigen Pläne
der Mächtigen kommen am Ende zum Halt.
Und gehen sie einher auch wie blutige Hähne,
es wechseln die Zeiten, da hilft kein Gewalt.

Intressant artikel mars 2013
We have heard all our lives that ideas are the most powerful
force and prevail over material interests. Perhaps this was once
true, but that would have been in previous times when material
interests did not control the media, the universities, and the
publishing companies along with the government. Voices such as
mine, that of a high US Treasury official, and that of Spence, a
Nobel prize winner, cannot compete with the voices paid by Big
Money. Today the bulk of the population knows nothing except the
propaganda fed to them by the oligarchic interests. They sit in
front of Fox News or CNN and ingest it all. Those who fancy
themselves more sophisticated get the same dose of lies from the
New York Times.
If those who speak truth cannot be bought off or shut up, they are ignored or demonized. Almost everything Americans need to know is off limits in public discussion. Anyone who broaches the truth becomes an "anti-American," a "terrorist sympathizer," a "commie-socialist," a "conspiracy theorist," an "anti-semite," a "kook," or some other name designed to scare Americans away from the message of truth.
The corrupt corporations, the corrupt media, and the corrupt US government have insulated the country from truth. The result will be a massive crash. A country built on lies is like a house built on sand:
"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock [truth]. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand [lies].The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash." Matthew 7:24-27 (NIV)
