A third Counter-Currents article on the ongoing Morrissey saga.

Excerpt

"You would think that after more than thirty-five years in the public eye that there would be no more surprises left. You would think that now that he’s turning 60, all the youthful rebellion would be long gone. And you would think that after the last two months of the media losing their collective marbles over Moz’s red-pilled statements and his support for the Right-wing populist party For Britain, that Morrissey would be ready to lay low for a while.

But if you thought those things, then you would be wrong on all three counts. Morrissey is a testament to the fact that one need not be a punk rock musician in order to embody the spirit of punk. In fact, those who are the most punk are rarely ever punk rock musicians. Johnny Rotten lamented that punk was originally about individualism, but quickly became a uniform. I have always been of the belief that Johnny Rotten was the only punk rock musician who truly embodies that punk spirit – and he got tired of punk rock music after one album."

This article is spot on.
