The day following the fifth anniversary of September 11 attacks is the perfect time, in my mind, to revisit this interview. Many questions were raised yesterday, across the blogosphere and at dinner tables, in the newspapers and in front of the water cooler, about the nature of world relations, about the expectations we have of our governments, about the role that we personally play in shaping the world.
Wayne Coyne's pleas for people to exercise patience as a means of protest, for people to take a radical stand simply by being measured and reasonable in their actions, and for people to question their government's motives, is far from what you normally hear coming from the lips (flaming or not) of a rock frontman.
Most of us live the most comfortable lives that have ever been lived in the history of the planet. So says Wayne Coyne in this interview, and he is quite right. And as the events of five years past proved, we cannot take that luxury lightly.
And we must always ask questions.
