Lost in Translation: The Rolling Stones in Cuba

On Tuesday, March 22, President Obama was in Cuba, the first President to visit Cuba in 90 years.

On Friday, the Rolling Stones became the first famous Western rock & roll group ever to play in Havana. It was a free concert.Mick Jagger scheduled the performance a few months ago. Did he coordinate this with the White House? Probably the other way around. No one refers to Mick Jagger as a lame duck . . . or lame anything else.

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Institute “President Obama opens for the Rolling Stones.”

As Jagger said — in Spanish — times are changing.

The crowd was around 500,000. Big.

The concert was bizarre. All of their concerts are bizarre. They are bizarre. But the word “bizarre” does not quite convey the true absurdity of the event.

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsFirst, among the VIPs was Warren Buffett. That man never misses an opportunity — a trait he shares with Jagger. The biggest real estate boom on earth is about to begin in Cuba. How much Havana beachfront property is he buying? How many factories to be torn down and replaced? Or did he come just to see a bunch of kids on stage?

Second, the kids — in their mid-seventies — still did their stuff. But what kind of stuff did they do?

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1)  They sang “Brown Sugar,” just like I knew they would.

Third, these young women had waited hours to see them sing this song, as they have sung it for 45 years — with enthusiasm.

What did they hear?

The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2)    Ah, but what didn’t they hear? What millions of fans have never heard in 45 years: the lyrics, co-authored by Jagger and Keith Richards. For 45 years, the lyrics have been hidden in plain byte. Doubt me? Click here:

Fifth, we read this in the Left’s traditional British outlet, The Guardian:

Reflecting just how open Cuba has become to foreign visitors, many in the the audience had flown in from overseas. Several Union Jacks were held aloft, as was the Stars and Stripes and the banners of Mexico, Colombia, Brazil, Canada and Panama. However, it was the Cuban flag that Jagger — the diplomat as well as the showman — draped over his shoulders to loud applause during “Brown Sugar”.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)Sixth, in the movie, Jumping Jack Flash (1986), Whoopie Goldberg says: “Mick, Mick, Mick! Speak English!” We have been waiting since 1966. We really do need a translation.

About Land & Livestock Interntional, Inc.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.
