: Yeah, nice tune. And I imagine that they will eventually retire and do the same thing as many aging rockers have done; enjoy a very nice living somewhere living off royalties (that's money to you bub)that their music has afforded them. Dittos with other entertainers whose emotion driven angst they are able to market.

Yes, and let's hear it for the ideological services rendered by our entertainers: a belief in class ascension through a lottery system---whether biological or arbitrary; hierarchy; cult of personality, deification of individualism; veneration of the social divison of labor, repudiation of the labor theory of value (though only a child would fall for that); etc., etc.
