******From the Playboy interview:
******
******"PLAYBOY: "Getting Better."
******
******LENNON: It is a diary form of writing. All that "I used to be cruel to my woman, I beat her and kept her apart from the things that she loved" was me. I used to be cruel to my woman, and physically -- any woman. I was a hitter. I couldn't express myself and I hit. I fought men and I hit women. That is why I am always on about peace, you see. It is the most violent people who go for love and peace. Everything's the opposite. But I sincerely believe in love and peace. I am not violent man who has learned not to be violent and regrets his violence. I will have to be a lot older before I can face in public how I treated women as a youngster."
******
******The ironic thing is that he preached love and non-violence, but he hit Cynthia and cheated on her and Ono. A world-class hypocrite.
*****
*****So you don't think people can change their ways or learn from their mistakes? Isn't that exactly what he's saying right here? It's called learning to be a better person, because we're not all perfect.
*****
****Right on Nutopia! It's sad when his fans can't show John the basic respect, that we all deserve, as we live and learn.

***Do you think he earned anyone's respect for his past actions? Nothing I have read changes my opinion - he never really came out and aplogized for anything he did.
***
***And by the way, listen to Anthology, disc 4, where he mocks anyone and everyone. He was insecure and full of self loathing.
***
***As for his checkered past, you can read this and digest it:
***
***Lennon's Past
**
***I am non violent man who has learned not to be violent and regrets his violence
**
**Sounds like an apology to me

*and a leader!

Words do not undo the damage. Nice that he said it though, but poor Cynthia and Julian.
