The deeper agenda is MONEY. It always has been.
I can't for the life of me believe that there's an entire industry of music, that's dedicated to masonic, satanic or any other kind of large scale attempt at 'programming people'. Beyond the obvious over sexualization of our youth and the pushing of consumerism.
The art of writing good music is all about writing lyrics that mean many different things to many different people.
IMO 'The Doors' were the masters at this and really set the stage for all acts to follow
Of course there were many others like Pink Floyd , jefferson airplane , Bowie ..etc etc
Does anyone here often question the motive of mainstream music?
I've been giving it a lot of thought lately. It's to the point where I hear Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Rihanna, etc, on the radio so much that it's almost mind blowing. This is in North America. I can't speak for other places, but it's force fed to us at a rate that's really revolting to me.
I hear the same 10-15 songs dozens of times a day on radio at work. Dozens, and this goes on for months until one of these particular artists release a new track. As a result other musicians of all genres go unnoticed and perhaps that's a good thing how the music industry works, and how much it manipulates and sensationalizes things. Essentially stripping who the artist or band was to begin with in most cases.
YouTube is dominated by these videos from these artists, with tens of millions to hundreds of millions of views. You can skim the comments and get an idea of culture today within the vast majority. People as a result aren't aware of other music a lot of the times, and so it's all they know. You see superficial comments, you see people who want to be like their idols. It has become unhealthy, and almost destructive society as a result.
This isn't to mention the imagery and symbols put forth, and I won't go into it heavily, nor will I post images, but it's hard to deny all of the demonic imagery, and countless hand gestures and pyramids and eyes that are present within music videos and photoshoots. All of these artists that dominate the mainstream exhibit very similar behavior. For instance, covering one eye. It's a conspiracy, yes, but it's almost creepy to the point where it begs questions as to what exactly is going on.
It bothers me, and lately I notice it more and more, no matter where I am. I see the faces of these artists, and how they are revered. You can take the followers of Kings, empires, everything in the past, and then take one of these artists and their followers, and honestly, is it really that different? One of these artists have tens of millions of followers.
I wanted to create a discussion about this, without it completely going off the rails, so I ask, what do you think of this? Is there a deeper agenda?
