Just LOOK at Hendrix's history.
One realizes that there's a marked lack of genius or anything interesting in entertainment lately.
Many talented people like this die early on or simply don't exist at all now.
My theory is many artists would've posed a threat to society's controls by becoming activists later in life or creating things that might reveal too much about the ways the world really works.
Kids are not left alone to their own lives now and even adults' lives are managed by the system now in place-people are not allowed free association. We are told how to think about everything now.
And honestly, having access to media in the hands of the public might have been a novel idea in the 90's but after late Clinton and 9-11 its not the same.
Now people must look at the system of control called the 'gang stalking' system as well as other forms of social control in place and realize that if truly alternative voices or genius coming out of nowhere are oppressed and never allowed to form naturally without hindrance all that anyone is going to experience is expressions of a very CONTROLLED public.
Free speech and access to expression through media are useless if people are being prevented from being heard or saying what they really want to begin with.
Also if only the public with means can gain access to media, it then marginalizes people once again just as before public access was possible.
With too many voices and too much info floating around genius could actually get lost or the public wouldnt know anything outside of whats acceptable for the average.
Most people are NOT going to understand artists or what kind of environments are needed to nurture such talents. Recently the media has been used to control even destroy talent by exposing artists, their lifestyles and their faults to the public. With the artist and the public focused on image and spying no one can focus on talent or accomplishment.
If someone is targeted and either destroyed before they truly bloom or are stifled so they are never heard to begin with and the system is covert and unacknowledged by the public, you then have a world even more easily controlled and managed becuz the public believe they are free and that everyone has access to expressing themselves.
The reason America doesnt produce any truly great artists, a common complaint from abroad, is becuz anyone here showing signs of talent or genius (who is percieved as not easily controlled) is targeted so they don't ever grow naturally.
America never left the old plantation model. This place is about industry and money-never truly great art.
America is about slavery to their ideals and norms. And theres a system of extreme control in place now that ensures that people dont stray from those norms.
Kid's lives are so controlled and monitored that there can never be another Hendrix or Tupac or Lennon etc ever again. And if you are female forget even getting as far as they did.
Strangley the system seems to stifle females more from expressing such genius yet doesnt kill women off so frequently.
Free speech is non existent if people are controlled covertly and not allowed to even think clearly or form associations or grow and evolve naturally.
