On Seeger's banjo was printed the motto: "This Machine Surrounds Hate and Forces It to Surrender." With these words, Seeger plainly stated that he intended to use music as a means to facilitate social change. He believed that music held the potential to help people understand their troubles and to take action to change repressive circumstances.
