My guess is this is George Harrison speaking out against egocentric me culture. It doesn’t even take a spiritual man of Harrison’s caliber to be disgusted by the selfishness and narcissism of nearly everyone, and the way those qualities are celebrated by society. And this was 1970, before the words I Me Mine became a de facto religious mantra. I don’t know much about religion, but as I understand it, most major faiths agree that to achieve a higher spiritual plane one must learn to relinquish the self. Yet right now I see reams of books and seminars aiming to guide you to spiritual fulfillment by nourishing and pampering the earthly self in every conceivable way. That seems contradictory to me, but again, it’s not something I often think about. What George Harrison made of it, I don’t know. He lived long enough to witness millennial ’me society’ in nearly all of its largesse, but he kept his thoughts to himself in his later years. What he’d have made of the advances that occurred in the years since his death, we can only imagine, but somehow I don’t see him looking kindly upon the glut of self-obsession new technology has allowed us to display.
