    Default John Lennon lyrics

    Which is the suitable translation into Spanish of these words of Lennon's lyrics
    Bagism, Shagism, Dragism, Madism, Ragism, Tagism

    I also have a doubt about the phrase "this-ism"

    thank you

    ...this is not going to be easy. The concept of "ism"s deals with people narrowing complex issues and pigeonholing people and ideas into specific categories (which generally end in the letters "ism") while giving no thought to the individual details of a person's thoughts or actions. It's all about a stifling classification scheme that roots out artists and free-thinkers. Bag (here most likely meaning "set of interests--'That's not my bag'"), Shag (well, it's not family-freindly), Drag (here: "bummer, something downing or depressing"), Mad ("Crazy"), Rag and Tag is a set phrase.

    I am sorry if my answer is more confusing than the lyrics themselves, but it's really tricky to dig through it. I thought I would give it a chance...

    Default I guess a possible translation

    Thank you for you explanation. I've found a possible translation in interner. Obviously I don 't know it is correct but it's a good option to have an idea.
    Anyway, thank you very much
