I am often asked, out of the blue, ‘who do you think you’re so special?’ A strange question, because I have never said ‘I am special’. So let me confess to my speciality, and let me root this confession in the generality of my mission: to save the world from the coming apocalypse. Let me tell you how I’m going to do that.
I’m going to undertake a long research project in Sociology, to hone my skills as a social scientist, and student of this social world we all (9 billion and counting) live in.
I’m going to release a debut album called Born which will speak to the world.
I’m going to bridge from academia to politics through music. Academia is how I speak to the elites. Music is how I speak to the people. Politics is about transforming the world to allow the gap between elite and people to be bridged, dissolving the former in the waters of the latter. This blog is the beginning of that mission.
I have come to save humanity from three interlocking cataclysms:
1. The rise of China,
2. Climate change, and
I have come to tame each of these pressures with my own power, the power of philosophy, and the power of the people. My own power is an artistic/political mediation between these extremes. I am the greatest musician of all time. I have also come to solve philosophical problems and political quandaries. I have come to realise the development of music up to this point, and culminate the long history of history and ideas. I have come to save humanity from the chaos by developing the human powers within me, as a way of showing how we can all use the power in us all to transform the world to meet our needs, as human beings.
I have come to end dehumanisation, the repression of human potential. I have come to unleash the potential in all of us. I was entrusted with the task of giving power to you — power to YOU.
Will you take it?
Will you let me help you take it?
Will you give me the power to give power to you?
Shall we begin?
