Musicians, why so silent?

We're poised on the brink of WW3, so where's all the anti-war songs?

A conflict with Russia would not be good for anyone except what President Eisenhower termed the military-industrial complex (MIC).

Russia is not only in a military alliance with China, it also has a similar agreement with India.

Bear in mind that both of those countries are nuclear armed.

They are also tipped to become, respectively, the world's number one and number two economies by 2025.

They both have populations of over one billion.

Do you really wanna take 'em on, punk?

The thing is, listen to the music playing on the radio or television and you wouldn't think anything was amiss.

Whereas in the 1960s many a musician took a public anti-war stand when the MIC laid waste to Vietnam, all you'll hear today is the insipid, one-eyed sludge being churned out by such vocodered corporate meat puppets as Lady Bloody Gaga, Beyoncé and that screeching hag Rihanna.

These are not artists.

They are the manufactured, stage-managed tools of the governments, banks and corporations that are the MIC.

And as such, they will never utter a word against their masters, who want to keep you dumbed-down and distracted while they carry on grabbing power and resources right, left and centre.

What's more, if all the negative occult symbolism – inverted crosses, satanic one-eyed salutes, all-seeing eyes in pyramids (the Eye of Horus), triangles of manifestation, etc, etc, etc – that keeps recurring throughout the marketing of mainstream music is meant seriously, then these meat puppets who sing mind-numbing nonsense and dance around provocatively on your screens are probably more than happy for there to be a war.


Because if they seriously endorse that symbolism and what it actually stands for, then they must be agents of evil.

And evil loves war.

Fuck evil.

Fuck wars.
