Man, I really love Carlos Santana (the light, the love)


MR: What are your thoughts about the current political climate?

CS: This is 2016, why are people still acting like West Side Story, with the Jets and the Sharks? Like John Lennon and Bob Marley and yours truly, we are one family of light. The sooner we can do away with flags and borders and all that division and separation, the sooner we will arrive at world peace and really, really, really heal the planet and each person with integrity of the highest dedication, highest compassion. There will be less graffiti and less trash and less crime. The prisons will not be full. But you have to embrace the concept that patriotism is prehistoric. It’s just that simple. We are one family, whether we like it or not, we are one. When I see the politicians acting like a Ku Klux Klan rally... A lot of the politicians that you see, you don’t see black people or brown people, you don’t see Mexicans or Jewish people in there, you only see a certain color. In the states, Hollywood’s really good at staging things. Look at the movie Wag The Dog. I live in Las Vegas. Everything about Las Vegas is staged. Every tree, everything is staged. It was just rubble a hundred years ago. It was staged. All of these politicians’ rallies are staged. They’re not real. Most of those people get paid to attend and to look enthusiastic. Can’t you see that?

MR: You know what’s ironic? They’re all calling each other liars, and they’re all right.

CS: Thank you for saying that! I think that in the future, we need one more app on Apple, an app that you put your thumb on and it reads your integrity, if you’re full of s**t and you’re a liar. And if you’re full of s**t and you’re a liar, you can not serve any kind of position to help humans. You can do other things, but if you’re going to represent the highest good of all humans, then put your thumb in here, just like you’ll do at the airport in the future. You put your thumb in here, you say, “Hello,” they look at your eyes and they can see everything about you. They can read the frequency of your intentions and your integrity. I’ve been pushing Apple to do this. Create an app that you put your thumb in and it reads the quality quotient of your integrity and intentions. That will eliminate all that wasted money on promoting liars and people would know integrity.
