Where Have All the Protests Gone

I was lamenting to God that music today doesn’t have the same relevance and urgency that it did back in the days of the Vietnam war. Back then the high profile acts found ways to be meaningful and entertaining at the same time. They spoke of the issues of the day in ways that, while they weren’t necessarily timeless, they are at least highly revisitable.

God told me that that form of art hasn’t disappeared, it’s just shifted around a bit.

And where did it go? It went into comedy. If you want to see truth spoken to power today, you go to places like The Daily Show.
