(Crocodile) Antibalas, Brooklyn's answer to Fela Kuti's legendary band the Africa '70, have a new video for the tune "Dirty Money." In the video, the puppet (or indeed Muppet) of a Wall Street capitalist goes around New York City making calls, making money, making the world turn, while the puppet of an ordinary man who has just been laid off goes around the city looking for a place to commit suicide. In one scene, the ordinary man jumps from a bridge into a river; in another, he jumps from the top of a tower to his death on a sidewalk. But here's the interesting thing about the video: In the river scene, the Wall Street man throws coins at the drowning man, and in the tower scene, the Wall Street man throws a rope of cash to the falling man. Meaning, the capitalist tries to save the ordinary man's life—but money is not enough. This is Antibalas's deep insight: The problems that money causes are not solved by money. We need answers, solutions that are outside of capitalism. Kuti would be proud of Antibalas.
