Music To My Ears
One of the problems liberty loving individuals, myself included, contend with as we attempt to convey the reality of Americans’ continued loss of freedoms is how do we best deliver this message, such that the message is not a cacophony simply grating on ones ears, and thus unreceived and unexperienced.
Gaghdad Bob, in a post at One Cosmos titled Music of the Hemispheres, examines this subject and does so in a most interesting manner, noting that the delivery of the message has “clear psychopolitical implications.” His post ends as follows.
Maybe we just need someone with a smooth and seductive voice to convey the message, because if McGilchrist is correct, music is actually prior to speech, and what we say is easily defeated by what our listeners feel.
