Re: Thoughts on Evil and Harm
[quote author=“digitalex”]Curious how the intro to this tune scares me to death but then a minute later, I’ve forgotten all about it and find myself grooving happily along.
The quote is actually what the Spanish conquistadors read to the indians of South America as they enslaved/killed/stole everything in sight, including cultural heritage. I think the reason it’s so disgusting of an intro and then beautiful result has something to do with the fact that we live in countries that were essentially stolen from their indigenous inhabitants, and yet we thinkg everything is dreamy and beautiful… dunno, but just a thought. (Info on the quote is from Charles C. Mann’s novel 1491, which explores indian culture/heritage (mostly in North America) before the arrival of Columbus in 1492.)
