We Lost Gun Control

Screen cap from Madonna's 'God Control' video.

America is a weird nation… they went to war for the lost of 3,000 people on September 11th, a war that has cost them trillions and trillions of dollars.

Yet over 45,000 people die each year there because they don’t have health insurance and therefore don’t have access to basic medical services.

And over 36,000 people die due to gun violence, and over 100,000 more are injured due to guns.

Yet these two major issues in the US are never addressed, well they are I guess, those in power suppress the issue at every turn because there is so much damn money to be made in the sale of health insurance, health services, and guns.

Madonna has just released her latest video clip “God Control”, it’s not for the weak of heart.

I opens with a disclaimer foretelling the violence that will be depicted, it then goes on to show the night of a shooting in reverse. Remember those of the LGBTI+ community that were gunned down in Pulse nightclub, the opening scenes are hard to watch.

But, as I listened to the song when it was first released, I thought, she’s not singing “God control” so it is nice to know my old ears aren’t failing me… and it’s nice to see Madonna still fighting for a cause occasionally. See Madonna’s God Control Music Video.
