I said nothing about the influence of the music industry on our culture. Nor did I comment on Lauren Hill's talent as a musician. I took issue with the embedded message about the lyrics of her song supposedly exposing the illuminati, which I consider a stretch.
There is nothing special about her, or the music industry, in representing a situation where... if you choose to speak your mind in some way that fails to conform with the dogma or expectations associated with your industry, you can risk, at best, losing support and, at worst, finding yourself blackballed. It's just the way it is. As for following her conscience, I gave Hill credit for doing so.
When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
