– Alternative Evolution: The Power Of Music In Politics.-
In Britain, “causing a stir,” “rawkus,” or yelling, are commonplace aspects of, “political process.”
In America, “Iron Triangles” are considered public knowledge and mostly dictate politics.
In Saudi Arabia, a royal family still rules, through DNA………
What’s the common ground? Politics. Decisions have to be made, societies change, cultures change, people change, things change.
But who decides how things change? Who decides if human beings 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….
Who decides, where this country will turn next? I’ve brought this up before, but when will we stop, “the same old conversation,” about creating jobs? Will some of these political issues ever reach a conclusion?
Take the issue of race in America…… You can fight racism all you want. You can stand up against racism, mix cultures, mix ethnic groups, create different social settings……. Yet, at the end of the day, when race and competition intertwine, there’s always turmoil…….. In fact, even in the most Utopian future, competition itself, mixed with race, often feels like a never ending dispute……. How can someone favor one person, without neglecting another?
So you have these political disputes that seem to never end….. and, in my opinion, some of them might never end. So will things ever change? Will our ancestors be talking about “race and job creation 200 years from now?” What about 500 years from now? Personally, I would hope they did not. Personally, I would feel poorly if they did. I would feel like we didn’t do our part socially to progress society, if that future, were to take place. I would personally feel poorly, if society remained so stagnant…. socially, politically and culturally.
So that’s why I bring up the concept of “alternative evolutions” today……. because society does have choices…. Political decisions took our society to this Zenith and they will take it past where we are today.
So what is an “alternative evolution?”
Alternative evolution is a word, I use to describe alternative paths for society……. How often do people even think about the magnitude of some of the smallest decisions in our society? For example, politics in music….. In America, music dealing with politics is often thought to be “taboo” or “overbearing” by the general public. But why?
What if things were different? What if music wasn’t considered taboo, when it was made for the sake of politics? What if songs, dealing with issues like; gun violence, the environment, or even equality itself, got radio play, in favor of current American music?
A change in that political landscape alone, could impact a number of things…… and this would constitute, what I consider, “an alternative evolutionary path.” So what I mean to “point out” more or less, is that small decisions like mixing music and politics, albeit seemingly small, often have a much larger impact on society and affect the human races long term evolution altogether…. REALLY THINK ABOUT IT…. What if MUSIC, was combined with politics and mainstream culture? Or what if athletes spoke out about politics, swaying public opinion? What if performances, were more than art?
What if….. heart, effort and passion, through musical or athletic performances, impacted government? What if the media had more opinions?
Regardless, the media today, remains hesitant to speak out, in favor of speaking out, on political issues…. For example, the Colin Kaepernick saga, in the NFL.
But what if that was different? To me, that constitutes what I consider, “an alternative evolution,” or another way of life, that affects almost every aspect of our daily lives today…….
What if politics and music, were thought of the same? Perhaps in centuries past, this has already occurred. Perhaps this occurred in Africa, Rome or Greek culture? It’s hard to say, especially with the “revisionist history,” we now teach kids in American Public Schools.
But go beyond that, what other “alternative evolutions” are Americans NOT giving enough attention too? How often do Americans even think in terms of “alternative evolution?”
There’s a real stigma in this country, to just accept things as they are, and then to consider them, “right or fair,” based simply on reality…..
For example, one last, “alternative evolution,” which I believe is worth 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? What if medical school was free and available to everyone willing to work and train themselves properly? Many countries, all around the world, need doctors… Yet, here in America we charge in excess of $150,000 dollars, to obtain the knowledge to practice medicine, when doctors are in short supply all over the world. So why is medical school so expensive? Wouldn’t the health care system greatly benefit from lowering medical tuition?……
Imagine if medical school was free? Imagine the positive affects worldwide…… And again, this is such a small change, that would have such a huge impact…. worldwide…. That’s what I mean, when I say, “alternative social evolution,” or a way of life, that we haven’t chosen, that I think more people need to consider.
But, there I go again, saying we should let the homeless, live in empty houses again. Quick, censor the internet, before social security collapses.
