Live 8 good idea but times have changed
Permalink  
 


When I fisrt heard about the event I thought, are people as concerned about world issues as they were back then. It's hard to explain but back in the 80's, music brought people together (corny as that sounds).


Many of the bands around at that time were popular the world over. Today there are so many different bands with pockets of fans but no real stars!


People are much more into themselves these days and it seems more so than in the 80's "me" generation.  


People are blaming Bob Geldof for everything that went wrong with Live 8. I disagree. At least he brought attention to a dire problem. It is a lot more than most who criticize him from their living room sofa's.


Bob Geldof did exactly what he was called to do and it was a succes. About a billion people watched and or participated in the event.


However, people fail to realize that you cannot make people care no matter what.


Bob Geldof did his part,the rest is up to the people (politicians are part of these people).


And if the people failed, I fail to see how that is Bob Geldof's fault.
