The official Twitter account of John Lennon posted a couple of new tweets and shared the iconic speech of John Lennon which he talks about handling non-violence and humor.
As you might already know, things got out of control in the United States, and many George Floyd protesters looted, damaged the shops as protests turn violent.
After John Lennon’s official Twitter account sent that famous speech of John, many fans have declared that he predicted the things going on today, from almost 40 years ago.
Here is what Lennon told on the video:
“Now we just reckon that when it gets down to ‘having to use violence’ then you’re playing the system’s game. The establishment irritates you – pull your beard and flick your face – to make you fight. Because once they’ve got you violent, then they know how to handle you.
The only thing they don’t know how to handle is non-violence and humor. But the thing they sure as hell know: how to handle you if you’re violent.
Because they’ll irritate you and knock you and do this to you and keep doing that until they make you fight. And then they know how to fight you. But if you fall for that, then you’ve lost.”
