Why Is Bob Marley Influential?


He believed that wars and decriminalizing people was wrong. At one point he wrote a song called "Buffalo Soldier" saying that war is wrong and how Jamaicans and Africans and many more people were forced to fight with the white people, apparently they lost their lives. He believed that if you want to get somewhere in life you have to begin with something good, a solution not a war. A for the quote that says; "Don't gain the world and lose your soul, wisdom is better than silver or gold, means that no matter how cruel or greedy you are you'll never get anywhere in life with your greedy self.
