What’s Wrong With Our Society?

It’s a question that I hear pretty often. It usually follows some particularly stupid or awful thing happening. People shake their heads and wonder, “Where have we gone wrong?”

Let me make a suggestion. Here is one perfect example of exactly were ‘we’ are going wrong. I don’t have a particular problem with the record company. While they might be arguably soulless for offering a convicted felon $3 million, there is a much larger issue. If it were not for the existence of a market for this crap, it would not exist. It’s really that simple. If record companies knew there was no market for music by unappologitic convicted felons, they wouldn’t make the offer. So long as we reinforce this behavior, it will continue.
