Today, I want to talk about fury.
Yesterday’s LTP, about finding music, got me thinking about how hard it is to find music that reflects the things I’m thinking about and feeling as I get older and more aware of the world around me. It seems that gone are the days of Lilith Fair feminist insight or Dylan-esque political commentary; here is Ke$ha, Gaga, Bieber. I’m not saying there’s no value in contemporary music, but it seems so… introspective? Self-interested? Unworldly?
And I’m kind of done with navel-gazing, personally. I’ve moved on to feeling, frankly, angry at the world I see around me when I look outside myself. And I look at our Persephone community here and I see a lot of people who are really aware of the world around them, really invested in meaningful issues that touch a broader community of people. So today, I want to know: what in the world provokes your fury? What makes you righteously angry?
