Ahh, music. One of the greatest tools ever invented by the bourgeoisie to hold down the proletariat. You would not be wrong in calling it propaganda.

Western music produces rubbish like Britney Spears and Amy Winehouse, encourages failures like Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan to spread their filth around even more, and corrupts and blinds generations of people.

What does music do? It makes the people care about pitiful things! It makes them worry about insignificant events like when so-and-so’s next album is released, or who so-and-so is going out with today. It means that the general populace is uneducated about the big issues, the things that are more important. They are now so conditioned that they care more about the fact that Lindsay Lohan is a lesbian than the pressing issue of the enhanced greenhouse effect, the ongoing War on Terror, and how Communism is suppressed.

Music is a mere triviality! In the greater scheme of things, music does little to benefit society or advance the human race in any way. Down with music! Down with the lies of the Western capitalists! Let there be freedom of thought for all! May the dirty American pigs stop filling our heads with useless trash!

I mean, have you actually listened to the stuff that they call “music”? Most of it is just mindless drivel that doesn’t make sense and no-one cares about. Look at, for example, the popular “Souljah Boy” song. What’s it about? Masturbating onto a sleeping woman. What about “Beautiful Girls”? The singer is moaning about how the emotional contract that existed between him and his girlfriend was terminated; and not by him. Is this really what we’re reduced to? Listening to other people’s life stories? About how someone feels sad that he was dumped? That the proper way to deal with an arguing partner is to masturbate onto their sleeping body?

Enough I say! I beseech you, every one of you, to throw away your Western CDs, delete your illegally downloaded music, and shun American “music” in general.

Instead, listen to some nice hearty proper music. For example, Ode to the Motherland, The Internationale, March of the Volunteers, the list is endless. For your viewing pleasure, included below are the full lyrics for “Ode to the Motherland”, also known as “Ge Chang Zu Guo” or “ 歌唱祖国”
