Yeah, and I am aware of the cost of the lesson which I feel justifies more
aggressive action by artists in "western" societies against the seemingly
inevitable course of events that we are being led now.

Hence I am interested in the likelihood of creating music that subvert the
current formula to counteract the negative influence of mass media on
"western" society.

Of course for those in non western societies this is probably not of any
value as they stand to gain the most if the western world turns into a
completely fascist society.

Although even that is debatable. The collapse of western financial systems
will cause a lot of pain for the poorer nations. Maybe even more than for
the nations that collapse. So, it can be argued it is in everyones
interest to find a way to work against the system in this regard.
