As anyone even half-awake—as opposed to "woke”—knows, the arts, monolithically left, are about as dead as they've ever been in our culture.
Name the genre, it’s one propagandistic bore. The message is always the same—and it’s a downer.
When art is created by conformists—and at this moment those on the left are the biggest conformists imaginable—it's sure to be worthless.
For the first time ever, as a member of the Motion Picture Academy, I didn’t even bother to vote this year, let alone watch the movies. Who needs Hollywood’s solemn lectures?
But, there’s hope, big hope actually, from the music world and at the highest levels.
They're actually taking back the culture for freedom from the left-wing conformists.
Naturally, the songs are being squelched—or, in the case of YouTube, often presented after interminable advertisements from the likes of Stacey Abrams—with their creators being canceled by hordes of leftists on that enemy of all slightly original (read: conservative or libertarian) thought, Twitter.
Needless to say, it’s not getting a lot of radio plays, which is amazing considering the pedigrees of the artists.

The BBC said: “UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said proof of vaccination must be shown at clubs and venues from September.
“Clapton said he will not perform anywhere there is a ‘discriminated audience present.’
As it happens, Clapton and Morrison will be playing together, far from the authority of Boris Johnson, at the Bridgestone Arena in my hometown of Nashville on Sept. 11.
I plan on being there, sans mask. I wouldn’t want to be part of a “discriminated audience.”
