Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I would like to have more time to answer (silly me of putting up a diary in the middle of a massive workload).

But the short story is:

If liking to play music is "romantic". If people want always "more". If people want to be "consumers". Then we, as a species, are screwed. Maybe we are (in that case, good riddance).

I thought I was the uber-pessimist around, but clear I am not.

I believe most of our current "desires" were invented (See Edward Bernays - There is a Beeb mini-series about this guy, mostly).

The reason we are Over-Prozaced is precisely because this "modern lifestyle" is at odds with our nature.
