London's burning- the great Clash song




(from 'London riots'
http://jdeanicite.typepad.com/i_cite/2011/08/london-riots.html:


"People won't take it forever. At some point they will take it back.")

  1. reminds me of two lines from Eliot's Four Quartets:
    'the only hope, or else despair/
    to be saved from fire by fire'
    (He wrote this during WW2, of course)

    Not a great choice, but a choice to be made.

  2. "to be saved from fire by fire" --the convergence of hope and despair, or maybe the point when they turn one into the other; despair becomes hope once there is nothing left to lose and this nothing opens up a space for movement; yet hope becomes despair as we recognize that movement will not be easy or painless--fire by fire

  3. 'freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose' went the song. Yet it is also necessary that sometime somehow something new be found and created, something with some capacity to take hold and develop, and some meaning.
