A good riff is written by nerds.
Alright so this is going to take some explaining. This took a while!
I chose from a algorithm website the closest bands to my two theoretical 'matching rock bands' Iron Maiden and AC/DC (Judas Priest, Megadeth, Dio/Black Sabbath, and Aerosmith, Airbourne, Guns N' Roses (easy win) and Van Halen). I'm not so biased with these bands, and it'll be more accurate. I'm only going to choose the nerds:
At least according to articles.

Van Halen - Hot For Teacher reaction
Aerosmith
Megadeth - Holy Wars modern reaction

^ looking for signs that someone with no interest in rock is getting into the music.
Particularly modern audiences, that have no experience with rock at all.

For those who want a much easier demonstration:
American listening to Arctic Monkeys

I give you the bass line to Another One Bites The Dust, written by the bassist John Deacon who wasn’t just a musician, but also worked on the electronics for the amps etc.

Also I give you We Will Rock You, written by the guitarist Brian May who is now a PhD in astrophysics.

Capitalism is a prison

This is going to be a fun one. I'm not going to write arguments pro-capitalism, but deconstruct the serendipitous aspects of it.

Two types of capitalist. Consumer and the consumer mentality.

@Crims if you've got thoughts regarding capitalism, or any other system you'd like to share, we'd love to hear about it. If you like, you can write an article about it. :)

My theory is that consumerism as a cultural phenomenon is like kings in the UK's psyche. Kings are on par with gods.
Consumerism therefore has either people who are obsessed with the idea of infinite money, or live in a world where they are all about wealth transfer, like Mark Zuckerberg. In both cases, for opposite reasons, people are products intrinsically.

I'm going to do a longform for this one. I've noticed that the majority of studies are inaccessible, or ungoogleable.
So apologies for no videos, a lot of intellectual content doesn't stay on Youtube for business reasons.

Capitalism is a prison


The tldr version:
idiocracy is the world
corporations are cruel
people see capitalism as feudalism


Consumerism (below) and the regular person.

Consumerism has two facets which can be allegorically described as Idiocracy, and Animal Farm.
A. Consumerism, Idiocracy
Corporatism:
Corporatism (*) creates a view which isolates services, and social interaction without question. All growth has to primarily benefit corporations, and no one else. Unsustainable to human beings, and POV of a rich CEO who has infinite slaves as long as he can get rich quick. Humans =/= CEOs.
B. Commoditisation, Animal Farm
High level corporatism, where there are no humans, only money vessels ("CEO mindset"). If you are in a poor country, and a US business creates a franchise on your land, it is because you are poor, not coincidentally. Profit from poor, aim for weakness and be uncooperative.
EDIT For example, today. Company doesn't help doctors costs.

Humans aren't meant for that, obviously. Being in such a sum zero environment means no development culturally or intellectually unless it is competitive. However, the best way to study that is by examination of commodity with a regular person, as it is the under current of both of those.

Regular person
Aside from being a number ala the Prisoner (1967), barring any reference any industry which is primarily negative, only point at the self evident aspects.

1. Celebrity is bad.
2. The idea that a person is an idea, and infinitely commoditisable is to say that a person individually has no rights. And vice versa, the CEO has no rights within his job. Ideology failure, feudalism. At it's best ideological serfdom, and at its worst retribution.
3. It necessitates a constant low level of conflict at all times, so as to facilitate a perpetual retribution. (Sadly the studies on increases of inhumanity are on my phone). Here's a Naomi Klein 2007 video where she predicts a permanent crisis state.

In a brief.
Capitalism is a lot of scrupleless leaders within a serfdom, working at one time.
Corporatism sabotages cultural development. Corporatism necessitates celebrity and engenders false speech and dumbing language into marketable sloganism. There is no "market" for intellectual growth not done at a loss, or detrimental when dumbing people is safe, and the idea of empathy with a faceless perspective ala the Idiocracy mindset is falsehood.

New: New example of attempting to create conflict ala the Animal Farm example, from today.


My own pet theory for America, is that the police are hooliganism in their society/tribes. If tribes are the law, fear leads respect. Feudalism.
If you would like a culture that is a culture, and not a set of laws, I highly recommend being aware of it, and then mindfulness. Humans are humans, regardless of a system that imposes itself on the poor.

*As opposed to corporatocracy. Corporatocracy infers basic needs are met, which they usually aren't. Social needs aren't. This is an article debating the point, fairly well.

AI, opposed to VI, is only good for chatbots.
I'm biased. BUT - despite progress with artificial intelligence, it doesn't have instinctive intelligence.

(WIP)
