It’s an ideological and philosophical problem. When do we fully realize that that our “progressives” are conservatives, and that our “conservatives” are panicked radicals? When do we get it that networking is not a way forward, but a web in all directions? That it’s the hyper that creates the stasis?
I know, right? Get this: it’s about music.
