Jimmy Hendrix once challenged about singing protest/blues songs even though he now had money, said “The more money you make, the more you can sing the blues.”
Jimmy Hendrix just wanted to be left alone to play guitar. But he was absolutely right on that comment. With money and privilege, we can protest anything.
I think education is a privilege. Having money is a privilege. In good hands, they are tools for progress .
Everyone with privilege should protest those things which are wrong. Jimmy was able to protest because what was wrong in those days was so CLEAR.
Nowadays, much of what is “wrong” is offered to us by tame media and social engineering – and education! – as “right”. We have unpacked the war talk, the art of prohibition, and a political correctness that rivals the righteousness of privileged society that Jane Austin would have written about.
We live in a world of fake. “The more money you make, the more you can sing the blues.” only applies to the privileged. Millions sing the blues, but are never heard.
