Anything creative, music, the written word, film etc can be used to spread particular ideologies and beliefs, but this is pretty mad.
Music in general, especially when used in a non commercial way usually brings people together and is a very peaceful thing. Cultures sharing music is
a great way of knocking down barriers and bringing people from different cultures an backgrounds together.
It's cheesy as hell, but music does save lives, without music I'd be totally lost and being creative musically has gotten me through the darkest days
in my life and compared to what many people in this part of the world have to deal with I haven't experienced anywhere near the level of tragedy that
these people have been through. Music doesn't magically make everything better obviously, but banning instruments can not cause any good at all. I
think we neglect the importance of creativity in general in all aspects of life from music to other subjects like science and politics.
If this is in fact true I am certain that there is either some sort of agenda that this fuels or is simply one of those crazy thing which has been
enacted in some bizarre way as often happens in places which experience extreme problems an conflicts.
I hate to come across like some ageing hippy, but music is so important to all of humanity socially, politically, creatively and culturally;.Even if
it is just restricting instruments use this is a constraint which can not possibly be justified by any rational thinking imo.
And now for my final ultra hippieesque peace an love thought - Teach a person to love music and you will teach them to love
