THE OCCULT HISTORY OF PUNK ROCK: PART 1 – TENTACLES OF THE ESTABLISHMENT
11 FEB 2017 POSTED BY ANTHONY TYLER
“The only normal state we know from the 1920’s on is a state of flux. Punk was not a reaction, it was the next stage in deconstruction of a way of life that was no longer necessary, masquerading as a reaction.
Posing as a revolution against an Establishment that created it. It was never dangerous and, most likely, the appeal of the ‘outsider’ that 20th century America had become romantically involved with contributed to its steady rise and I believe it was anticipated, and planned for it to be a normalized commercial success.
A celebration of deconstruction and a rejection of self-worth and skill which, in attitude and lifestyle, was transferred to the general public–but benefits of this ‘Establishment’ have been afforded to the select few who fomented these ideas. These are revolutions in the mind and meant to be confined to that sphere.
The revolutions take place in people’s personal lives but not in the political or economic realms. That’s how it is designed. Music can be\could have been pure entertainment on a higher level, but mass culture does not allow that. It is true that scenes can organically function and sustain but they will either be ideas that have already existed and run their course or they will never be given any attention by mass media or culture ever.” – John Adams – Researcher of Punk’s untold history
