Voting through Spending: Remembering Michael Jackson

Jul 1, 2009 by

Michael Jackson is dead, likely killed by the pressures of the industry that made him famous. To commemorate him, people are buying his CDs in record quantities. I find this to be a very questionable behavior.

Given all the harm that the industry (and perhaps his family) caused him, perhaps true fans should consider not giving the industry and his family more money. A more sensible way to commemorate him might be to volunteer with a drug treatment program or to help stop loved ones from abusing prescription medications or drugs. Doing that would help solve problems rather than perpetuating them.
