But why blame society? The empirically-obsessed culture in which we live, teaches us to marginalize our own creativity. Having been stripped of our own creative-impulses, we, the public, devour with our hungry projections those few who refuse to bury theirs. We convince ourselves that Michael Jackson had all the talent and us normal folk had none. Our educational system stomps out the creative urges of the general population, under the assumption that only a marginalized few have anything to offer. I am not saying that anyone could have performed like Michael Jackson. But I am expressing the view that the intensity of public hysteria that so easily destroys the childhood of young entertainers, is really the voice of our own undeveloped creative-impulses losing the battle to be heard. If American education gave learning to play an instrument a fraction as much attention as it gives to football, then the mob-like craving to devour our most talented young musicians would fade.
