Lyrics by Ron Tippin
Imagine, sometime in the not-to-distant future, that our justice system has been completely revamped, and trials are now done on social media...
A person gets arrested, indicted, and then, while they sit in a cell awaiting their fate, people vote on their guilt/innocence...
Is this dystopian world really so far-fetched an idea?
Throughout history, there have been countless examples of the "mob mentality" to observe... What is it about humans that make such an alarming many of us so bloodthirsty?
Cult-thought... "Us vs. them" tribalism... Relationship breakdowns... These are just a few of the themes that run deep in these new songs, all too apparent in our modern world...
What a terrible scenario to imagine, that so many have lost their ability to empathize with their fellow human beings who have opinions they disagree with...
Is this the direction we are headed in?
What is the end-game of this possible future, and what can we do to avert it?
