Does culture matter? Culture reflects an image of society. If we aspire to truly higher spiritual and moral achievements, it will be reflected in popular culture. That was the mood of the 1960’s. People seemed to desire something better for all. Popular music was multi-faceted and the themes of “love, peace, and happiness” prevailed. Since that time, society has devolved into fragmented, polarized factions with a few lusting for money and power over all. Popular music reflects it, too-all image, no substance. All looking for a more elaborate way of saying nothing… Garbage in, garbage out. Homogenized drivel. Yes, it matters.
Does freedom matter? Do you want some faceless bureaucrat dictating every aspect of your life? Do you want to be banished to the digital gulag for having your own point of view?
This “funneling” involves social scores, financial transactions, education opportunities, medical decisions, in short, everything. Who better knows your needs- you or government? Choose carefully. It’s permanent with socialism. Yes, it matters.
Rule of Law
Does the rule of law matter? We have a totally corrupt Deep State (former and current) attempting a coup of our duly elected- President Donald J. Trump. They are trying to project all of the crimes they have committed on to him, making up stories and lying every step of the way, not to mention negating our vote. If they get away with this and escape their own crimes against humanity, we are surely lost in post-modern lunacy. Do you wish to have unequal two-tiered, elitist/globalist-tilted justice system? Are you still “innocent until proven guilty”? Do the ends justify the means? Yes, it matters.
Does theft matter? If a political party cheats to win an election, does it matter? If dead people, illegal aliens, and felons can vote (some multiple times, no doubt), who can’t? Can a Russian or Chinese citizen vote here? If you vote their “prescribed” way, probably. Do we need voter ID’s. Absolutely! How do politicians routinely steal from all of us, promising benefits for illegal aliens, while their constituencies wade through the mess of filth to a job that forces more taxes from them, only to see more of the same. Do we need the United Nations to continually undermine United States’ and Israel’s sovereignty? They are a total scam that we primarily fund. Organized theft. They are freeloaders using other people’s money (ours). Yes, it matters.
Does honesty matter? If your friend lies to you, is it alright? Do you just accept the fact that elected officials will probably always lie to you? Do you think we should just “go along to get along”? Should we keep supporting media steeped in socialist bias? Maybe we should just hold everyone accountable. What a concept-fairness! Yes, it matters.
Does free speech matter? Do all opinions deserve to be heard? Should people be prevented from having thoughts as well as the right to air them? Will we have red flag free speech laws? We have unspoken ones now. Ask Christian or conservative YouTubers who have been jerked around or silenced what they think? Trust me, they’ll be coming for you , too, when your usefulness has expired. Yes, it matters.
Why Does It Matter?
Why does it matter? If you want the government dictating all things in your life, it won’t. Most of us, however, want our life decisions made individually, not collectively. We are unique, after all. “One size fits all” never works, that’s why socialism/communism never works. If you care about what kind of world you pass down to your children, it has to matter.
Why Do I Care?
Why do I care? I’m a composer/writer/producer. Why does it matter? I’m not Republican or Democrat. All I ask myself when voting is “How much personal freedom do I have with this candidate?”. That’s it. If I can’t express myself freely as an artist, I can’t properly do my work. Our country was built on personal responsibility- freedom to succeed as well as to fail. When man tries to put Government on par to God, he answers to no higher ideals than his own, thus failing miserably in the end. Look where we are today… How’s it working out? Of course, it all matters!
