Today’s required reading: an essay by Roger Scruton, writing for the blog of the American Enterprise Institute. It’s a fascinating (and occasionally dumbfounding and infuriating), if long-ish read that argues for moral absolutism in music. Fear not, this isn’t a Classical Music GOOD/Pop Music BAD screed at all. Rather, Scruton puts a new – and specifically musicological – spin on the classic fear that today’s music is at the root of our moral and societal decay.
Give it a read and tell us what you think. Will the soullessness of certain “product” ultimately lead to the downfall of our species, or will the vapid eventually fall away without leaving a lasting mark on humanity?
