Yes, sorry that's pretty much what I meant to say, I was going to put "good" in quotation marks but for some reason I didn't. Anyway, different people have different interests, I'm not going to tell you that music is a more important one than any other and I don't think the fact that most people are more interested in football is due to a conspiracy, that's all I'm saying."Large numbers of people simply aren't interested in music in the same way as the nerds around here, plain and simple. Whether it is "good" or not is another matter entirely..."
I'm simply not sure that that is true. Don't get me wrong, I'm not certain but that's just my instinct. Don't know how it could be tested."i think if you grab anyone, anyone in the world, who would not otherwise attend, and sit them down in the recent Hariprasad Chaurasia and Shivkumar Sharma concert in Singapore, and they would have a rewarding experience."
Taj Mahal Travellers and others you mentioned to me would fit into the category of "music that is too good to be played on the radio". that is a different kind of hypnosis than the "productive" hypnosis of commercial radio, which is a hypnosis that directs your attention back to work/consumption, and does not lead to ideas about other modes of being, other ways to spend your time and energy. commercial radio is not entirely satifying, but provides a surface distraction, and does not allow deeper involvement for long periods of time: enjoy these assembly line pop songs for 15 minutes, NOW GET BACK TO WORK!
terrence agrees with me:
"the problem with canibis is that it promotes social values and attitudes which are unwelcome in capitalist, market based systems. it's that simple."
i do think it really is that simple. and the only plausible reason for it being prohibited.
What about the even simpler explanation that cannabis was prohibited for entirely boring and arbitrary reasons which were actually rather idiotic, that it's not part of any capitalist conspiracy to keep you bored and at work (a more capitalist capitalism would legalise and charge you for it), and that it's all part of the same clawing about stupidly in the dark that characterises human history?
Interesting. That would explain the very different effects of something like good sensi over straight up chronic.CBD has antipsychotic properties as well, in distinct contrast to THC. In fact there are studies that indicate it as a good treatment for acute schizophrenic symptoms.
