No Innocent Bystanders
by Mickey Z.
No Innocent Bystanders is a manifesto in fractals.
Transcending labels and political parties, it gets to the heart of our planet’s rapid decline using a blend of facts, humor, vignettes, and relevant quotes and lists. On the liner notes for The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan album, it’s stated that the song “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall” was written during the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis.
“A desperate kind of song,” Dylan called it.
“Every line in it is actually the start of a whole song,” he explained. “But when I wrote it, I thought I wouldn’t have enough time alive to write all those songs so I put all I could into this one.”
No Innocent Bystanders has been created in that spirit.
