“Without music, content life would be a mistake.” These are the exact words of Friedrich Nietzsche that inspires me, ladies and gentlemen. What is the use of a society without music? Music is vital in our social existence since it is a tool of expression and interaction in society. Censoring music is a spell of doom and an insult to a quest for the realization of perfect social order. Music is life, and no one can dispute that. I come from a lineage of musicians, and I comprehend the challenges they experience to produce an appreciated music. These people’s aim is to change the society by expressing their thoughts. What if there is a prohibition of this kind of inspiration? Do you people think they will survive or turn to deviant ways in the society?
Everyone has a right of expression and freedom of association. Musicians use entertainment to air their views about the societal and political conflicts. Listening to such kinds of music and watching video is informative and reveals the rot in the society. Censoring of music acts as an information blackout to the entire world population since the hidden issues will go unearthed and society will be plunged into a dungeon of hesitation and abyss. Ladies and gentlemen, editing some content of music audio and clips lead to the distortion of the meaning a song. A musician would not be in a position to relay his or her message fully due to deletion of the important parts. In a situation where the deleted content formed the real content that would lead to the appreciation of the music, a musician would lose market and live in a world of hopelessness. Think about his or her family. The kind of losses they will incur from the music ban will lead to family instability and frustrations in life. Some of the family members might opt for crime to solve their financial hoodoos as opposed to focusing on moral obligations. What then is the importance of censorship of music if it only leads to emotional instability and poverty in the society?
Governments of various nations claim that some music content leads to immorality. Their claim is an act of hypocrisy. Government officials are the most corrupt individual that promote immorality in the nation. Their perception of the music industry is ill-advised and a bid to control the entire society since they view music as a threat to the existence of their autonomy. Since music as a label leads to prominence, harassing of the musicians through proposing policies that can deter the success of musicians is unfair. It is discriminating for the authority to censor music since they cannot censor their immoral ways in the society.
Global economies depend entirely on music as an entity that leads to the promotion of social order. Music censorship will translate to poverty and imbalanced economy in the world. I do not think we need that. Everyone intends to live in a balanced economy where opportunities are common for perfect growth. Music censorship denies the largest people an opportunity to ply their trade and promote economy fully. An imbalanced economy is a breeding ground for crime, violence, and conflict that no one intends to experience. We should rise up as a people that value their society and welfare of everybody irrespective of the profession.
Ladies and gentlemen, our health is our life. Music acts a therapy towards the realization of a healthy nation devoid of psychological disorders. Sedentary life leads to frustrations that arise due to obesity. Through music in the yoga classes, people practice and understand the need for physical fitness: the background music acts and therapy to such kinds of an individual with a mental disability. Editing some content of the music might deny them the right for recovery and promotion of a healthy nation. There are enough problems that musicians are facing in the society that censorship of their music will be an insult to their professional competence. The issues of copyright, hacking and piracy are some of the issues that musicians have toiled to tolerate in a society full of people who do not value other people’s means of survival. Can we still go ahead and add salt to an injury? It is disheartening to see a musician’s work washed down the drains due to censorship. If music could have been immoral doctors would not have proposed the usage of music as a tool for therapeutic sessions.
Music is a tool that promotes unity and salvages dire situations that need a public response. Editing some of the content will lead to infringements of rights of a people in accessing valid information and the denial of access to an in-depth world that is full rot and immorality. Should we stand firm and discourage the government’s role in the editing of musical content and the ban of certain music from the public consumption? Are we ready for the change ladies and gentlemen?”
