This is a song by a Reggae Artist named Sheldon Campbell, aka Turbulence entitled “4000 years”. Turbulence stresses that freedom is nonexistent; therefore, liberation has to be seek and “we need it now”. He questions if modern day slavery will ever seize along with other constraints of freedom. The previous song from the 1960’s by Tom Paxton is an Anti-war song and Turbulence “4000 years” is an emancipation song. Both defers because Paxton “buy a gun for your son” focuses on giving your child the right toy to play with and teaching him the right thing, while “4000 years” centers on freedom in general. Today, there’s still anti-war songs that serve the same purpose with new messages and freedom is still being redefine constantly as time progresses.
