TIDBIT: COMING SOON TO AN OPERA OR MUSICAL EVENT NEAR YOU: QUOTAS
While you're pondering the nuttery of American culture's "stinking, sinking garbage barge," consider this one:
Classical Music’s White Male Supremacy is Overt, Pervasive, and a Problem
As I warned last year at Catherine Fitt's Louisville Luncheon, the assault on music itself has begun, and trust me, these people a lunatic enough to impose quotas on how many hours one listens to music. And we can predict the forms it will take: if you're white, and listen to Duke Ellington or Josephine Baker or (in my case) Leontyne Price, you'll be accused of "cultural appropriation" rather than simply wanting to enjoy some good music. Did you spend enough hours listening to Hindu ragas and Tibetan chant today and appreciating the "overtones" of non-tempered music? Good lad: submit your form for the culture police before the end of the week.
Progressivism must politicize everything, from NFL games to the opera. We're not permitted to simply enjoy things, regardless of who creates them. Everything must be a "statement."
This is idiocy.

What happens when you commercial music to the point of securitize, financialize, derivatize, privatize, monopolize? Hey, if you’ve got the money, you’ve got a top 40 on the hit parade.
If your music is really good; it’s going to entertain those infamous prisoners at Guantanamo. And if it drives them inane. You’ll all be hearing it soon after – ad infinitum on your radio/media/buffets/etc..
They’re butchering the concept/word music.
Devil in skin
begging at the door
want to come in
to dirty the floor,
has a holy
that is baptised
by heavenly father
in sanctified soap water.
Step 1: Pick a thing. Step 2: Politicise it. Step 3: Police it. Step 4: Pulverise it. Step 5: Out of the dust and rubble, raise the new Paradigm. Rinse and repeat.
Will my privileged internet access be denied if I try to listen to or view something that does not conform to my demographic and/or genotype ?
