whilst i see your point, Little Finch, i believe the OP is trying to draw focus to one particular demographic. of course there are infinite flagrant
displays of human ignorance littering the inter-web, but to address such a wide array of brazenly crude stupidity may be the job of another thread.
instead, we are focusing on one.
the analogy i would make is: Symptom vs. Disease.
the abhorrent website being discussed in this thread is a Symptom of a much larger Disease.
but what is this Disease? is it purely human stupidity OR is it a more nefarious design by The Powers That Be that wants to keep us "stupid".
being that this is a conspiracy website, many of us are apt to believe the latter... that this display of crude behavior being promoted as "a cool
way to be" is being intentionally orchestrated to keep us fragmented, violent, and hateful. why? perhaps to fill Private For Profit Prisons. or to
keep the youth of today... who can be an extremely powerful force, mired in hate. or to keep racial tensions inflamed, because a people divided cannot
unite. to make old people afraid.
i don't know... i am sure many ATSers would have insightful perspectives on this.
anyhow... sometimes, by exploring the Symptom, we can ferret out the Disease. then we can begin to find a solution & healing. that is (as i see it)
the purpose of this particular thread.
~as many others are here on ATS, i am also a musician. therefore i process much of the world's stimulus through my auditory senses. as we know, sound
is vibration, and harmonic sound is a truly powerful force- healing, inspiring, transcendental, spiritual even.
as a fan of music in general, there is a great deal of Hip-Hop that i find brilliant... the polyrhythms, righteous hooks, inspiring lyrics, etc. etc.
(KRS1, Lyrics Born, Jurassic 5, Beastie Boys [rip AY], etc. etc.)
however, what is being promoted as Hip-Hop on these sh!tty websites is NOT harmonic music. in fact (and this is my point) embedded into the very
structure are discordant-vibrational patterns meant to disrupt our natural harmonic state.
i could say the same for many other forms of Pop Music, and commercial jingles, etc. etc. etc. anyhow, i suppose this is also a topic for another
keep up the sharp insights folks, and please do not judge a whole demographic based upon the ugliest of the lot. it keeps us all ignorant. it's what
now i'm gonna listen to some old school country and play a Trip-Hop beat on my trap-set over it, just to see how that goes.
