The library of essays on music politics and society
Within our culture are people who want to provide for a safe, rational, and happy society and who see some music as a threat to this goal. Changing the course of music through censorship is not a viable solution. So if these people wish to reach their goal, they must find another way to influence artists as well as the buying public. The way to do this is to become artists themselves; to enter their own music and ideas into the pool of the marketplace. If their product is good (interesting, truthful, popular, influential), then other artists and consumers will absorb it, enjoy it, buy it, and/or let it influence them. If their product is not good, then, just like other artists throughout history whose work was not good, it will not be an influential force. This would be a more probable and historically-precedented way of "protecting" society.
