RTE Roundtable Talk #13: The Artists Begin to Speak
With Tonika Todorova and Braeden Daggett
"Creativity takes courage." -Henri Matisse
We have begun to put together an organized list of our podcast episodes and transcripts here.
The artists have begun to speak.
A few weeks ago my friend Operation Uplift colleague released her remake of the old Tears for Fears song, Mad World. It went viral.
I love this. I love the way a billion people are searching, expressing, talking, and coming together about how to achieve the kind of world most people want to live in. There is a great deal of work ahead, and the building will be marvelous.
The artists have begun to speak more and more during the pandemic. Many have woken up to an array of realities about medical authoritarianism and the cruel nature of the West's totalitarian final form.
Today our friends Tonika and Braeden joined us to discuss some of their own art—some of which has gone viral over the past few months—and also what other artists are doing to speak about or against the nonsense overtaking the globe during the pandemic. Some of the songs and videos are amazing!
Watch us also at YouTube, if that’s your thing.
If you watch to the end, you get to find out the mystery gift I gave to Tonika who is one of Operation Uplift's several muses making powerful art during the pandemic. She was not a musician, but picked up her son's ukulele to express something. Putting more tools in her hands seems like a win for the universe.
Tonika has already written about our Roundtable Talk here:
Who Will be Our Muse?
The artists are beginning to speak.
Once upon a time Muse was the class act of rock 'n roll war protesters. Starlight is objectively one of the greatest songs of this young millennium.
At the time, many people around the world—perhaps even Muse themselves—might have imagined a partisan element to the song. Perhaps today they've grown to understand that they're protesting the Uniparty, and what all that means. Heck, perhaps they knew all along. I'd like to think so. One way or another, they're back to draw the line on Compliance.
Already, this should be an indication that resistance to Western Fascism is reaching a crescendo. But let's be clear, this is not an isolated subculture or extremists. There is a common thread among many communities. Here is the Spotify playlist of 200 songs we talked a little about.
The Kernel of Truth
Among the rappers are some dissidents not of the first (new) dissident generation. Their intuition is better practiced.
Apparently there is something like a post-Eminem Christian rap culture, which is all the proof anyone needs to be certain that rap music has now reached every corner of the planet. They're speaking, too:
I don't know who this is, exactly, but I can see a lot of crowds singing along:
I'd never heard of Chris Webby, but he seems to be pretty popular taking the "direct approach" that will surely be deemed "radical right-wing" by the establishment.
The Cartier Family gives a little feedback.

The Groovey Train of the New Dissidents
The new dissidents reach a different, but broader audience.
The artists are speaking.

Thank you, Mathew and Liam. This is wonderful!! And by God, artists need to speak out already!!
Also, I feel compelled to very immodestly add that ... ummm. ... *some* artists have been speaking up before COVID even started. (I am only allowing myself to be immodest because we have camaraderie and a sense of humor, and, maaaaaan, it was lonely to speak up about it back then!)
I released this particular album in 2017, and most songs on it are much older than that.
(Sorry.... my modesty is now kicking in)
If you’re going to include rap, then you have to include Mesus, Gates of Hell, going off on Bill Gates. Calling out the vaccines and Epsteins island..
