Watch Leonard Cohen as he performs “Democracy” in the PBS special LEONARD COHEN LIVE IN LONDON

Leonard Cohen’s “Democracy” is prophetic: “I love the country, but I can’t stand the scene…..Democracy is comin’ to the USA.”  For me, this song could be the Occupy Movement’s anthem.
After a 15 year absence, Leonard Cohen, one of the great signer/songwriters of our time, returned to the stage in London. The live performance aired on PBS and is available for viewing on youtube. I’m offering it here in support of the Occupy Movement in Maine and everywhere the voices of the people are crying out for justice, equality, and a voice.
