VII. "What's Goin On?"
I deliberately chose Marvin Gaye's "What's Goin On" for article VII and John Mayer's "Waiting on the World to Change" for article VIII, for a reason. These songs are not rock. "What's Goin On?" is Motown, (Motor Town) Detroit! Remember the reference to George Will. As all our MRAPs (Mine Resistant Anti-Personnel) vehicles and tanks were pulling out of Iraq, I heard George Will say, "We can't rebuild Detroit, how are we supposed to rebuild Iraq." Nation-building requires different skills and technologies than those with which we built the industrial world.
