How to Change the World

Aaron Weiss, lead singer of the little-known band, mewithoutYou was asked about the changes he'd like to see made in the world. He sincerely and humbly responds with a parable about contentment and how we can never really know what's good or what's bad. He also brings the abstract idea of world peace into perspective and asks, "What about the guy next to you? Do you have love for him?"

Freegan

Aaron Weiss is a freegan, who practices what he preaches, eating discarded food and running his tour bus on waste vegetable oil. Freegans are, in a sense, anti-consumerists living alternative lifestyles that don't promote greed or fuel power hungry corporations. Aaron believes that in order to change the world, one must improve oneself first by setting an example to influence others.

this is an interview with Aaron weiss from mewithoutyou



After seeing Aaron in person in Detroit on July 4th, I knew my respect and admiration for this virtuoso was not misplaced. In a world of hypocrisy, Weiss is a shining paradigm of virtue and selflessness. A glass can only spill what it contains; and from Aaron, pours an unparalleled zeal to serve God by glorifying Him with beautifully metaphorical lyrics that he shares with a world in dire need of lessons of morality and brotherly love.

The Fox, the Crow and the Cookie is one of mewithoutYou's such songs on the pitfalls of pride. View it exclusively here:
