After a while we all grow numb. Comfortably numb.
The motoric beat of Neu, Can, Kraftwerk, et. al. demonstrate the numbing effect of repetitive cognitive manipulation. If their protest against the plastic society that swallowed them in the machine has been lost to history, today with hindsight we recognize the scorn that was demonstrated. The world be damned for all i care. Let the la-la happy folks advertise their numbing book lists, let the la-la gog-a-magog punish the dying for hoping to live, let the la-la lancelot recreate in his own image every dark knight they can manipulate, let the la-la happy generation march their piper tune to bliss even if that be their end. The world be damned for all i care. This is what the german understood. This is their protest. This is numb music. This is thier protest againsts the numb generation. Don't get it? Watch again. Protest. Stay alive.
After while we all grow numb. Comfortably numb.
