The world is becoming stupider. As the world is doing this the entertainment industry has responded by putting out music and movies that appeal to the masses. The reason I say this is that, in most cases, people who are reasonably intelligent and have higher paying jobs are probably more likely to have one or two children. Forgive me for generalizing, but typically they are more concerned with the welfare of their offspring and would prefer to have only one or two children that they could really mold into productive members of society. On the other hand the poor uneducated masses are having more children. There are probably a lot of reasons for this, e.g. lack of birth control. And again I'm generalizing, I'm sure there are poor uneducated people who only have one child. Anyway, back to my point, while the educated are having only one or two children that replace them when they die, the poor, typically undereducated, are having more children and increasing the amount of stupidity in the world. After years and years of this happening the world has become what you see today, a collection of stupid people with a few almost extinct intelligent people scattered here and there. The entertainment industry to appeal to these masses have only put forth musical acts like Broccoli Spears, Bucktoothed Boys, Out of Sync, etc., and have not produced a decent movie in years. When a label tries to put forth an act like Morrissey, the masses say, "huh, who the hell is that, what's the word dagenham mean, why are the teachers afraid of the pupils, why's that boy racing about, who the f.uck is keats and yates, etc"
The solution to this problem, put sterilizing agents in the tapwater. Then only people who drink bottled water (you know the more wealthy intelligent) will be able to reproduce making the world smart again. Only then will Morrissey be able to find a contract and make music again.
