Political Dada Video

Born Yesterday by John J Heartfield

CONTENT: I was inspired by my grandfather’s art to write the song “Born Yesterday” and use it as the soundtrack for this video montage. I believe in a capitalist economy and our democratic system. However, I don’t believe in greed as the heart and engine of that economy. Wealth should exist not only to grow more wealth. Wealth must create opportunity for a decent life for those without. John Heartfield’s son and my father, Tom, believed that. Somehow, in the last few decades, we’ve lost that in America.

“Born Yesterday” is performed by FounD (John J Heartfield and Marty Brounstein). If the visitor is interested, other songs written by John J Heartfield can be heard at
