The Music Conspiracy And the Politics Of It
Truth can be stranger than fiction. Look at the demise of the Black community and rap. Rap is like crack, it is cheap, toxic, and easy to make. It a fucking trainwreck and while people say that expression is a reflection of a society, they won't admit that the reflection has an influence on shaping a culture or community. Rap objectifies women and glorifies violence and it is not beyond the realm of possibilities that there is a conspiracy among the corporate elite to perpetuate that as a means to their sinister end. A reader sent me something about the 60's counter culture musicians having connections and parents in very high government positions. The theory proposed the idea that a bunch of degenerates opposing the Vietnam war would discredit the intellectuals who were articulating in logical terms why the war was a mistake Then you have the deaths of so many of them at a young age. e.g. Lennon, Hendrix, Morrison, Joplin, Kurt Cobain, Prince who bucked the recording industry, Michael Jackson who wrote songs about peace and the environment and racial harmony, Amy Winehouse, Phil Ochs a socialist who was blacklisted, Marc Bolan and the list goes on.
Now music as we know it is dead. Songs have no message or purpose or motive.
Generally, the common denominator is money but with the global music industry being less than $15 billion the money part of it is coming from something else and I think it is fascist corporatism. Controlling the message and its medium is crucial for conquerors and today's criminal power elite.
A Cultural Wedge?
Black culture in the US sucks now and White culture isn't much better. The subjugation of women in rap music, in rap lyrics is in part responsible for the fact that 70% of Black kids are raised by women who are often dangerous, immoral and dysfunctional. While corporate sellout Snoop Dog glorifies "pimpin hoes nationwide" impressionable Black youth buy into that cheap moronic bullshit and bring it to fruition as they destroy their community.
Is gangsta rap designed to drive a wedge between the police and the citizen and created to cause an us against them mentality? Why wouldn't the criminal elite want the cops against the people and why not start with turning them against Black people? Maybe they want a race war so that they can keep the masses scared and suspicious until they demand security tyranny? I want the cops on the side of the people and I would think must cops want the same.
Wanna make Blacks look stupid and obnoxious, in the minds of Whites and make them feared and hated? Simple; create a Kanye West and call him a real Nigga and keep him in the spotlight.
The prison industry is huge and very profitable. Create more criminals and revenues soar. Arrest people you know are innocent and revenues soar.
Keep people isolated by putting music on ipads and MP3 players.
Why is the industry releasing lame and meaningless songs to further dumb down the masses?
The super rich end up fucking themselves with their insatiable greed. It is interesting that under Bill Clinton the rich did incredibly well and the middle class and the poor did better than ever. The corporate gangsters were threatened by that because wealth buys power and freedom and independence. They don't want the wage slaves having power. They want cheap labor. In their greed and stupidity, they have created a race to the bottom. They raided pensions to the tune of 3 TRILLION! They raised the retirement age so the old slaves must return to the field. The slaves are working harder for even smaller crumbs.
At less than $15 billion annually, the global music industry is a tiny drop in the bucket to the plutocrats/kleptocrats. The money the medical industry makes treating the gunshot victims in the inner city is way more than $15 billion. The incarceration of violent and drug criminals is a $100+ billion dollar industry. Gun sales, security alarms are all up.
Who pays for all this? The workers! We have an obesity epidemic caused by corporate greed and they knew damn well what they were doing with obesogenic foods. It is interesting that on every single medical company board of directors sits a few banksters.
No More Songs?
The first rule is orchestrating a coup is to disrupt and then control communication. From madrigals to broadside ballads to protest song to the songs of the slaves, songs have been a form of communication and a vehicle for political change. Now there are no more songs.
