If you were to construct wide-ranging conspiracy--one that would have implications throughout society--and it had to involve music, what would you do?
Here's a suggestion:
1. Get buy-in from all the major players in the music industry to promote a new genre guaranteed to cause a certain type of unrest resulting in many more people being sent to jail.
2. Have those same music industry players secretly invest in private jails--the facilities used to house the same people who were inspired to commit crimes by that new genre of music.
3. Cash the cheques from both the sales of the music and from various levels of government for running those private jails.
Crazy, right? But in a world where many people believe that AIDS was a CIA plot and that 9/11 was an inside job, I can see how a something like this could gain traction within certain circles.
This scenario is exactly what's alleged in this story. If the author is to believed (hell, if the person even exists), it's pretty scary.
