We are all "The man in the Mirror"
I am not sure who said it earlier in the blog but it was remarked that the man in the mirror is MJ. To some extent I would agree with this but I feel that the "man in the mirror" is all of us; men, women, old and young. Everybody has at one point in their life looked at themselves in the mirror and wished they could change something about themselves or about the world, and the observation that there are many people in the world that "That There Are Some With No Home, Not A Nickel To Loan" is obviously something that many people have noticed and wanted to change. It is interesting to think about what made MJ think about this song, if in fact he wrote all of it, there was probably some event that triggered this type of thinking. Most likely this was a fairly traumatic event as it made Michael want to change not only himself but also to change the way his audience thinks about the world they live in.
