5.0 out of 5 stars A Cry from the Heart — Bodes Well for Restoration of Hawaiian Sovereignty, October 7, 2014
Serious lyrics about Hawaiian sovereignty lost, repression, and prospects. I for one am certain that Hawaii will be a restored nation-state one day — I also tend to believe the US flag will stay at 50 as California divides in 3, making up for Vermont and Hawaii pulling out.
This is one of those musical offerings where the words really matter — I am reminded of John Lennon and the importance of his lyrics. Secession — self-determination — is the last resort of any people so abused by the powers that be that there is no other option.
12 songs, including “Office of Hawaiian Despair” and the title song, “Sufferreignty.
I have reviewed a number of books on self-determination and secession and hope that this musical offering will inspire those who listen to song in preference to reading to consider doing some reading. Here are ten books I recommend, all of which, without exception, support the lyrics and intent of this wonderful musical offering.
