That can sound a little simplistic or jingoistic, but it's true he crafted sing-along songs that could easily turn into mantras toward virulent Communist/Stalinist movements.

I've loved the music, and took the message with a grain of salt. I thought it important to remember, as Johnny Cash intoned in gblow's post above 'nobody's perfect.' Occasionally worried that the grain of salt was a salt lick for many.

OMFG, my baby learned in a government school that because WWII was an important undertaking he's excited to go off an die some day!!!
