    This fragmentation and overabudance of choices applies to books, films, and other entertainment media. Remember watching certain VHSs dozens of times? I rarely ever watch the same thing twice.

    The amount of choices have led to fragmentation and listen and throwaway. Before napsters and such, the amount of music accessible was extremely limited. Most people just listened to whatever the radio or TV were playing. A few did go on excursions to the record store to find more obscure stuff. The music playing medium also made it difficult to constantly change between songs and albums. So many people played records the from beginning to end many times. I remember before the popularity of mp3, I used to have periods of times when I sat and actively listened to music the way a person would read a book or watch a film. Nowadays as others have mentioned, I can't just listen to music, I have to be doing other stuff with music being background music.

    The narrow flow of musical output allowed people to really digest certain songs and become united around the few songs the way people unite for Football teams. Nowadays with the fragmenation and incredible output of music, it's hard to really delve deep into songs and to develop collective musical moments in memory.

    Republicans seem to be turning more libertarian minarchists these days.
