Oh that's silly and you know it.

Music has been political for a very long time; much longer than punk; and to claim that political music is toxic is as bone-headed as the opposing claim, which claims that non-political music is part of the problem and is perpetuating a distinction and fantasy that perpetuates political problems. That isn't true either.

Or I hope you don't believe in it.

Anyway my point is simple: there is a VERY GOOD argument against non-political music, and a very good argument that non-political music is the most toxic of all.

But I don't buy it. And I don't buy your argument either.

And that your readers didn't point that out is disappointing.
