Apart from the Bob Dylan's song where many people have tried to interpret its meaning, as I have seen on the Internet, I would like to know if the phrase in question is common in current English and what is its meaning.
Before searching on the Internet, I thought I knew it but finding nothing palpable I began to have doubts. I imagined that the phrase means futile, în vain, pointless or to no avail for, what would be the point to blow in the wind?
But, as it seems, no one interpreted it this way, on the contrary, the interpretation of the death's metaphor or the breaking winds from the Urban Dictionary has nothing to do with what I thought about it, so I just wonder: do people actually use it? Does it mean anything? On what context?
