    this dylan song is as revelant today as it was in the early 60s. it's revelant to every major political event, war or threat of war, scandel-nuclear arms-tragedies that affected the world, but that has it's place in a hard rain,. basically in an ever changing world, the way we live and act is also constantly changing and we either change with the times or we are left behind.it's a warning word not a threat and dylan as usual said it better than anyone did or will

    Your asking me for my interpretation is the interpretation for The Times They Are A Changin'. He prophetizing the coming changes in America when the traditional virtues will be replaced with Tolerance and Equality. It's the Revolt of the Masses" that he's writing about where the average person takes control of civilization. The self satisfied masses no longer listen to their betters, their parents, or the past.
