The heart of revolution is music

What we really need now, and in the near future (2010s), is a new music movement.

The music of the past ten years is exactly the kind of music that promotes NWO takeover - it keeps people ignorant and stupid.

We need positive music, to compliment a movement toward a more positive world. Do you think that's possible? For mainstream music not to suck?

A shameless plug here, but I made a forum about a new genre of music that is emerging. It's called new urban music, it's basically a return to more positive sounding music with hope for the future.

Feel free to join it if you'd like: newurbanmusic.proboards.com...

Do you agree or disagree though, that revolution needs music in order to happen?

I also think that when Green Day started hating on the Bush administration, Americans stopped blindly respecting his policies just because 9/11 happened.

You're absolutely spot on the mark.

Hence all the current chart music encouraging materialism, disrespect, sexual looseness, depravity and such.

Music is power.

break free.

A perfect circle has a song about the nwo,and Tool has songs about the end....not only are they very talented musicians,but their songs have meaning.Pretty much anything on the radio these days is watered down trash...but thats just my opinion.

I'd like you all to review my link:

www.jstor.org...


Basically Theodor w Adorno states that:


Thus, although the culture industry undeniably speculates on the conscious and unconscious state of the millions it is directed, the masses are not primary but secondary, they are an object of their calculation; an appendage of the machinery. The customer is not king, as the culture industry would like to have us believe, not its subject but its object.


Never a truer word spoken.

Everything is calculated. We are the end result of a bombardment of information. If the current trend lends itself to our current beliefs then the machine has already won.

Music has been so crappy for so long, it's nice to see it (hopefully) improve. I hope the new urban stuff takes off and we don't relapse into more Pearl Jam wannabes and gangsta rappers.
