Rush's "2112" (First 11 minutes)

Writing in Righteous Indignation, Breitbart noted that, “the left doesn’t win its battles in debate. It doesn’t have to. In the 21st century, media is everything. The left wins because it controls the narrative. The narrative is controlled by the media. The left is the media and narrative is everything.”
I'm curious, if you are a true RUSH fan, do you see any symbolic relationship of the famous "Man in the Star" drawing and todays Libertarians (i.e., Tea Party members) ?
The only time I heard RUSH, to my knowledge, was when Geddy Lee appeared with Bob and Doug McKenzie.

One song I highly recommend. Anthem:


begging hands bleeding hearts will only cry out for more...
Check out their song "The Trees". Its thought provoking, although I think I heard the songwriter didn't really have a message when he penned it.
There is unrest in the forest,
There is trouble with the trees,
For the maples want more sunlight
And the oaks ignore their pleas.

The trouble with the maples,
(And they're quite convinced they're right)
They say the oaks are just too lofty
And they grab up all the light.
But the oaks can't help their feelings
If they like the way they're made.
And they wonder why the maples
Can't be happy in their shade.

There is trouble in the forest,
And the creatures all have fled,
As the maples scream, "Oppression"
And the oaks just shake their heads

So the maples formed a union
And demanded equal rights.
They say, "The oaks are just too greedy;
We will make them give us light."
Now there's no more oak oppression,
For they passed a noble law,
And the trees are all kept equal
By hatchet, axe, and saw.

Guh-r8 allegory. Or fable, if you prefer.

Whichever the case, it's in the 10 ring.

I used "2112" because it's listed as the longest (22 minutes) song from the 70's.
Love the "Woodpecker" sound in that song - nice touch
Never heard of or listened to "2112" but it has to be better than the longest song of sixties which I figure was Canned Heat's "Refried Boogie" which droned on for 41 minutes. I chose to buy their double record over the Beatles White Album because I loved "Going Up The Country" and could only afford one or the other at the time. Biggest recording purchase mistake I ever made as all of sides three and four were one song with the same licks over and over. Never did get the White Album. Off topic much?
The "White Album", if released today, would be called RACIST. I'm sure Barry grinds his teeth silently with every mention of where he lives.
Whut chu talkin' 'bout, Willis? Barry White? Barry White lives in Heaven, Man! He didn't have a racist bone in his body!

One of my favorites. I love being in that state between sleeping and wakefulness and listening to that whole side.

2112, with lyrics
Hate Rush. Hate 'em, can't listen to 'em. Brilliant musicians, absolutely shit music. Like modern jazz circa the 60s and 70s, it's a nails-on-a-chalkboard sound.

And I'm a HUGE fan of progressive rock, just so we're clear on the topic.
