Truth - Rebel Soulless

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.  I'm very perplexed about a certain line of thinking.  It's called rebel soul.  Kid Rock has an album called this.

Pretty much it means, and I am assuming of course, that one needs to be free of the status quo. One needs to think outside the box. One needs to ride like the wind.  One needs to run

Forest run!

With everyone getting just smashed with postive reinforcements on how to live your life - with quotes, movtivational posters, music, and rock stars who like to swear alot - I just don't get it.

So if Kid Rock goes on stage and swears up a storm yelling how great Detroit is or how proud he is to be an American - then everyone goes woot woot, then all of a sudden having a rebel soul is validated?  You are then unlike others, but like everyone in the crowd? The 15,000 of you there are rebels..but everyone else is not. What is your soul rebeling against anyways?

Hmmmm because these people will all stop paying taxes? Because these people will all stop going to work for the man?  Because these people who wear an American Flag bandana are all of a sudden chest thumpin fist pumping red white and blue blood Americans personified?

I wish Kid Rock would preach a more positive note instead of an empty one. I like his music he can rock. However the whole American badass thing does nothing for me.  It is fluff.  I'm sure he means it, feels it. I'm sure his fans get pumped up. That's ok.

That's a good thing of course...but how relevant is it?  I don't  see the greater value.

How does conveying that you are an American because you happened to be born here really change your life? Lucky.  How does saying woot woot while some rock star swears enrich your life? Ok so it's simpleton stuff - and there is room for that I suppose.  But don't you want and expect more?  Don't you need more? Don't you have to have more?

We should demand more than woot woot! We should demand more than the theater at the colliseum.  The lions are eating the christians - tastes like chicken I suppose.
