“From ‘All You Need Is Love’ (“There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done”) to ‘Mind Games’ (“Projecting our images in space and in time”), John Lennon sowed the seeds of a grassroots revolution that was as open and inclusive as previous attempts had been closed and prohibitive. What Lennon proffered was a revolution of the head that was both individualistic and universal. His was a vision without prejudice, hatred or segregation. It was easy. Anybody could do it. And it could be summed up in one word, the most powerful world in the English language — Imagine!”
