– Alternative Evolution: The Power Of Music In Politics.-
In Britain… causing a stir, rawkus, or down right yelling…. are common aspects of the political process.
In America, “iron triangles,” are often considered public knowledge and typically dictate the reality of politics, behind closed doors.
In Saudi Arabia… a royal family still rules, through DNA.
But where’s the common ground? Politics and decision making, because decisions have to be made, societies change, cultures change, people change and life changes too. But who decides how things change? Who decides, if we allocate resources to our oceans? Or if we save animals from going extinct? At the end of the day, how do these decisions go into law….
And furthermore, who decides how much this country will borrow next? I’ve brought this up before… but when will our nation, “end this rhetoric over creating jobs?” Or will some of these political conversations ever reach a definitive climax?
Take the issue of race in America…
In my opinion, you can fight against the prejudice of, “racism,” all you want. You can stand up against racism, you can mix cultures, you can mix ethnic groups, create different social settings, whatever… but at the end of the day, when race and competition are intertwined, there’s always turmoil. In fact, even in the utmost Utopian future, competition itself, mixed with ethnic diversity often feels like a never ending dispute. Whereby, how can someone favor one person, without neglecting another? What is winning?
So you have these political disputes, that seem to never end… and in my opinion, some issues MIGHT NEVER END AT ALL… but how will that discussion change our society? Or, will our ancestors talk about, “race and job creation,” 200 years from now? What about 500 years from now? Because personally, I would hope that they didn’t. Personally, I would feel poorly if they did. In fact, I would feel like we as a culture, didn’t do our part as a society, in terms of progressing society, if that future were to take place. I for one, would feel personally responsible, if this society remained so stagnant… socially, politically and culturally speaking… as to debate, “race and job creation,” 200 years from today.
But that’s why I bring up this concept of, “alternative evolution,” today… because our society does have choices and furthermore those decisions… decisions to build pyramids and cross oceans… have taken our society to this Zenith and will take it beyond.
But specifically… what is, “alternative evolution?”
“Alternative evolution,” is a phrase that I use to describe alternative paths of occupational evolution/bio-evolution. But how often do people think about the magnitude… of some of the smallest decisions in our society today? Particularly in terms of, “bio-evolution/ occupational evolution, or alternative evolution?”
For example, the combination of politics in music…..
In America, music dealing with politics is often considered, “taboo,” or, “overbearing,” by the general public… but why?
What if things were different? What if music wasn’t considered taboo, when made for the sake of politics? What if songs, dealing with issues like gun violence, the environment or gender equality, got radio play in political settings? A change in that political landscape alone, could impact a number of things… and this would constitute, “an alternative evolutionary path.” Basically, what I mean to point out is that small decisions, like mixing music and politics, albeit seemingly small, often hold a much greater impact on society then people think. Furthermore, these decisions also have tremendous effects, exponentially, on the future of our society, as well as what we reward, both psychologically and biologically, today.
To be clear, what if….. heart, effort and passion, through music or even athletic events, impacted the government? What if the media had a say in the EVOLUTION of our society and democracy itself?
Regardless, the media today remains hesitant to speak out, in favor of speaking out, on political issues… and a good example of that… is the Colin Kaepernick saga, in the NFL, today. But what if things were different? And to me, this constitutes an, “alternate evolutionary path,” or another evolutionary path un-chosen… for example rewarding musicians more, might change the human species entire bio-chemistry, if done over decades/centuries.
Nevertheless, there’s a real stigma in this country to just accept things as they are and then to consider those circumstances as, “right or fair,” based upon the current reality. Regardless, one last, “alternative evolution,” which I believe is worth… at least… “a talk at the dinner table,” is making medical school free (or at least cheaper).
What if everyone had the opportunity to go to medical school for free? Or what if medical school was drastically cheaper and readily available to the public? Many countries, all around the world, need doctors… yet, we charge in excess of $150,000 dollars to obtain the knowledge deemed necessary, to practice medicine.
And when doctors are in short supply, all over the world… why is medical school so expensive? Wouldn’t our global health care system benefit tremendously by lowering the costs of medical school? Wouldn’t the human species benefit? Now imagine… if medical school was free? Imagine, the positive impacts worldwide… and again… this is such a small change that would have such a massive effect, worldwide. Furthermore, adding Doctors to the work force would not only increase the health of others but it would also positively impact the health of individuals who would now choose to become Doctors, as opposed to less healthy profession… in turn, making our society much healthier. So that’s what I mean… when I say, “alternative evolution,” or a way of life, that we haven’t chosen, that I think more people need to consider.
But… there that man goes again… saying we should let the homeless, live in the abandoned homes. Quick, somebody censor the internet, before my parent’s social security runs out… #REALNEWS
