Making music is voluntary. Unlike bread, we don’t require it for our sustenance. Accordingly, music shouldn’t require its pound of flesh from the would-be listener. The price of art should be set by the market, by the listener, not by a machine with political interests.
Man is full of energy; it is up to him how to use it! You can use your energy to do harm to people or to produce art and science; or you can use it for chattering or for deceiving people! By looking at the human history, we can easily say that man is guilty of wasting his energy mostly for stupid things!
Nothing, it appears to me is of greater value in a man than the power of judgement and the man who has it may be compared to a chest fulled with books, for he is the son of nature and the father of art.
