I grew up in the church and I went to a Christian school until I was in the 9th grade. Several times throughout my youth and childhood I was urged to watch videos about how evil Rock and Roll is. I guess this was to make sure that I turned out OK. Some youth groups would even have parties where kids would come and smash their evil CDs.
I have had many discussions with my friends on how to change the world. Most people will offer up ideas like medicine, technology or even things like solving world hunger. Although these things are good, I have observed something even more powerful than these things. Art.
