    • I just watched a few Jamiroquai music videos and this one in particular stood out to me because of its message. "When You Gonna Learn?" Talk about a video that was ahead of its time, spelling out a lot of our current issues and humanity's lack of ability to learn from their mistakes. It raises an interesting philosophical question: Will humans ever learn? Or will we continue to pollute the planet, damage our earth, and ultimately destroy ourselves?

      Note: The images in this video are a bit disturbing. Important message, though.

    • As a person who owns between 50 and 100 cars, depending on which article you are reading, and multiple helicopters, I'm not sure Jamiroquai has quite got the not polluting thing sorted himself.

      Although truth be told I'm probably being hypocritical as if I had his wealth I'd probably be the same.

      "Calvin" discussed this concept with his mother.

    • Jay Kay is a car collector. But I think the number of vehicles he owns speaks more to a life of excess materialism than pollution. He can't drive more than one at a time.

    • Yeah, in another interview Jay Kay acknowledged that he's not perfect. He seems to be pretty open and transparent, which is nice.

    • Cannot find video on Youtube! It won't play here either. Pointless posting videos that won't play.

      Slamdunks video plays fine for me.

    • Humans have been saying what you're saying for eons. We won't ever learn. We're just human after all. Monkies in disguise, that think we're special. We are not. We may go extinct. Fact. Many causes not all of them ours. We can't harm this planet it will shrug us off soon, I feel. We are just pests it needs to eradicate, then mother earth will just go on without us. Ever see Joni Mitchell's song, Big Yellow Taxi? Same story different generation. https://youtu.be/7agB7jriyUU

    • Individuals are bound by life cycle, once each of us dies, where is the lifelong presumed accumulated wisdom gone? Lost! Rinse and repeat. There is no such thing as "we" the "humans" when we can't even agree to be coherent on basic things on a global scale. We are not bees, nor ants in our disorganized and careless/reckless social behavior, but wish perhaps we'd have been as good as dolphins.

    • It certainly does seem as though history repeats itself and that humans keep making the same mistakes year after year. It's just different people making those mistakes.

      So, sadly, it does seem unlikely that as a race, we will figure it out. But one can hope, no?

    • Sadly, "hope" means leaving things to sort themsleves out.. Without respect for culture, tradition, and science applied with benefic intent, without understanding society's values importance and prioritization, without a global vision, there is little hope for human race. But they may survive in another increasingly twisted, chaotic centennial same as ever. The only changing variable is population increase in numbers..
