These days, there are numerous prominent individuals running around pretending to stand for truth, justice, etc., etc., etc., while simultaneously maintaining pathetic at best personal lives. One extreme example of this is Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore, who is credibly accused of sexually harassing and assaulting minors over a period of years. He regularly claims “God” as being on his side and the credible allegations against him as the work of “evil” — or whatever.
British hardcore band Employed To Serve are among those not interested in putting up with this hypocrisy. It’s a pity that many American heavy music fans might not have heard of the band before, since they come from overseas, but the only way forward for the band from here is up, and the opportunity remains for Americans to hear about them.
On the track called ‘Good For Nothing,’ from 2017’s The Warmth of a Dying Sun, Employed To Serve vocalist Justine Jones sings:
‘Do you even stand for what you preach?
Or is it just for validation?
You make it your purpose just to teach, but it comes across like a contradiction’
There are oh so many people to ask that question to. It’s not just for Republicans who pretend to be “holy” but are really pathetic — at best. The question is also for those on the left who claim to be working for the interests of the average American but spend their time running around doing the bidding of corporate America. The question is for all those who would claim to be for equality or whatever else — but will easily abandon the cause when it comes to something that they dislike, such as, say, women sticking up for themselves.
The question could be asked of so many.
