See the difference? Dylan was for the most part seemingly a manufactured star, marketed by the same record industry that has earned the deserved scorn of many musicians in the modern era from Michael Jackson to DMX. In at least one interview, he’s admitted as much, as have other victims of the modern record industry.
The above quote was someone’s analyisis of Dylan’s lyrics as featured in the quote below:
Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile
Why wait any longer for the world to begin
You can have your cake and eat it too …
There might be a war on, for your mind, but it looks like this author has already lost. His mind has been taken over by ignorance.
In the war for your mind plagiarism is the enemy, not the artist. Apparently unknown to the writer of this article, Bob Dylan and Dylan Thomas are artist who want to free your mind, not lock it into some box, where people can control it. Maybe, as the author suggest, there is a war for your mind, and he, in mistaken candor, has shown you that he is your enemy.
Plagiarist are technicians who believe that the way of war are not as important as the ends they hope to control. Plagiarists are simply warriors who, by any means they hold, will seek to control your mind. An artist wants to free your mind even of his/her control.
You may not understand Bob Dylan’s lyrics but his lyrics hold truth not lies. Maybe it is not your truth, or the whole truth, but it is truth within the orientation of the artist, and holds an advantage in the environment the artist observes. The artist may control you with truth that you can see, but the artist does this by demanding free-will in your interpretation of his work, not in the content of his sentence.
I don’t know this web site that well, so they might be just stirring the pot a little by printing something so bogus as this article. I wish them well in the war for your minds, but, unless this article is a satire, I think they have already lost theirs.
