Ugh. The bulk of this dreck is the sort of insipid, meaningless tripe that is usually associated more with McCartney than Lennon (I mean honestly, it's almost as bad as "Simply having a wonderful Christmas time"), but it's the "War is over if you want it" ending (no, it's actually not, you ridiculous man-child) that vaults this thing into the stratosphere as perhaps the most egregiously stupid bit of vile and delusional Boomer idiocy ever recorded.
