Great Analogy Why Socialism Sucks Inadvertently Told by Liberal Musicians (including Chester Bennington)
The best analogy of why big government socialism sucks is inadvertently made in this 30 Seconds to Mars anti-capitalist VIDEO. And Liberal “artists” still don’t get it. All of a sudden artists become capitalists when it gets personal. The most profound statement against Socialism is at the 1:24 mark. “We can’t pay the hit artists because we have to pay all of the bad artists.” Yet all these asshats will still vote for corrupt pieces of socialist shit like Obama and Bernie Sanders.
Lead Singer Jared Leto is an Obama-supporting Democrat. He even held his own star-studded Obama fundraiser, charging between $500 and $2,500 for entrance. Three of the president’s top aides attended.
But the issue closest to Leto’s heart is the environment. He walks the walk too–from touring with his band in a vegetable oil-fueled bus to convincing fans to donate 71,000 trees to a reforestation initiative in Haiti.7 Leto also made a music video for his song, “A Beautiful Lie,” to illustrate the effects of climate change by shooting it in the arctic and including factoids onscreen for interested parties to read. He said:
We all know by now that our planet is in deep trouble. We have abused it horribly and we are paying the price. It’s time to try to do what we can, both as individuals and collectively, to find better and kinder ways to live. It’s not our right; it’s our responsibility. We are all guilty. We can all change.
If that doesn’t put Leto squarely in the liberal camp, his effigy for gay rights certainly does.
Did/do record companies rip off artists? Of course. If you weren’t smart enough to get excellent legal representation and management you were bound to get “ripped off”. You made a BAD DEAL!
Did record companies take all of the capital risk? Yes. Were they out to get the best deal they can possibly get for their share holders? Of course.
As you go through the video the profound statements against Socialism stand out.
“The hit to shit ratio is so bad. They’re saying, ‘Hey! We can’t pay the hit artists because he’s paying for all the bad artists.”
Chester Bennington from Linkin Park who just committed suicide today by hanging himself (July 20th, 2017) states in the video, “… taking advantage of uneducated, easily swayed artists who really don’t care about money.”
Don’t care about money? Bull-shit! Then why are you whining about money?
Brandon Boyd of Incubus, “We had to sue our label to get paid.”
The video goes on to explain how the music business and money distribution happens. They don’t explain how a record label makes a band famous so they can go on the road and make a crap load of cash ripping off their fans with exorbitant concert ticket prices, $30 t-shirts and other crap merchandise.
Chester goes on to a political analogy of a record contract, “it’s kind of like legislature for government. They put up this big issue but underneath that issue there’s like 17 other little laws that they threw in that they’re not talking about. So when you say yes to this one thing you’re actually saying yes to 45 other things.” Kinda like ObamaCare there, right Chester? Oh, you’re dead.
Video goes on to explain packaging costs. You know, like all that plastic and paper being used for CDs, DVDs and even vinyl. Artists don’t care about the environment when their plastic products are mass produced and sold.
Whiny dead Chester complained, “Artists generate so much money for so many people that have nothing to do with the creative process at all. There’s no road you can go down, that the artist isn’t f*cked.”
Really? So can we say the working class, the productive, generate so much money for the lazy, the non-productive that the productive are fucked? Where are your socialist values? Oh, I forgot. You’re dead.
Lead Singer 30 Seconds to Mars Jared Leto states this Spinal Tappish gem, “Most people out there who have jobs, they can go to their boss and ask for a raise, they can leave and go get another job if they’re not happy. Musicians don’t really have that ability to do that.”
The video showed me how LIBERAL “ARTISTS” are MORONS and HYPOCRITES!
