Re: crappy music of the masses

BUT..........what if the anger & expression lead to physical 
manifestations? (i.e. beating the shit out of people, killing folks, 
beating the crap out of one's significant other, et al).

Personal expression is great. The older I get, the more I respect those 
who don't conform to the norms and express themselves via the arts or even 
just in terms of clothing, hair, whatever.  

However, a lot of brainwashing is in effect in modern day society by the 
media/advertising/broadcasting conglomerates. And what people are doing 
isn't necessarily motivated by their own desire to express themselves but 
rather their expression is a result of being influenced as to what they 
should be doing by folks selling stuff.
