    It bothers me that society seems unable to distinguish between individuals, and the characteristics that the individual posesses. Prince had incredible talent. That talent is laudable, and was far in excess of the musical talent which most people have. That is something to celebrate and honor. But he was a womanizing drug addict, and those characteristics speak much more directly to who the man was than a musical talent. He was not a man deserving of honor, least of all from society as a whole. The fact that the media (the very institution which stands to make the most money off Prince’s death) is behind all this promotion should be giving people a clue as to what is really going on here, but ignorance is bliss and they would rather not even know the truth.

    Yet the truth exists independently of it being seen.
