Little teaching goes on in schools, even less happens in homes. Popular culture teaches our children as it reeducates and propagandizes our adults. Simply examine the terms.
Few remember the 1950s. Music tastes, then, as especially now, were dictated corporations who bribed disc jockeys to play mindless blither.
