Is it ?! But in what does it consist? To be quite frank, I struggle to really see much political content in there at all, and practically none that isn't at least ambivalent or reliant on one among several possible interpretations. There's republicanism and vegetarianism, but these are, to most, peripheral issues and also not related to more general political orientations in any very clear way.Ah, but you said a minority of people appreciate the political content of The Smiths, which is a different thing altogether from a call to political action. The political content of The Smiths seems to be overwhelming: at least in America Morrissey was a different kind radical that inspired great love and great loathing in equal measure.
