I wish it could be

I wish it could be just about music. And the art. But it isn't. It's life and everything else that comes along with that. As I've entered my 40th year on planet Earth, I am more certain than ever that I am not a liberal. I am not a conservative. I am not a libertarian or a green. I am a rationalist. And I am sick and tired of the relentless attacks from all sides on intelligence, science, and reason. The far left is just as bad as the far right. On a good day I can just make music. Doing the podcast helps, at least I feel like I'm doing a little bit for the long-term good of civilization. But the lack of thinking skills in America today is appalling. If you understand what scientific consensus means and you agree with the consensus on climate change, you must logically follow the consensus on other topics like GMOs and vaccines. If you think the government is inept at everything except hiding who killed Kennedy and how we faked the moon landing, go back to school. If you think your God commands you to kill you need a new god. I'm sorry this will offend some, but I am no longer willing to live a separate life with my music, tiptoeing around my personal convictions. If you are offended, perhaps you can separate the art from the artist and still listen to my music or look at my drawings. If you can't, all I can do is wish you well.
I do wish it was just about the music.
