Anthony Burgess: I remember an old proverb. It says that, uh, youth, um, thinks itself wise just as drunk men think themselves sober. Youth is not wise! Youth knows... youth knows nothing about life! Youth knows nothing about anything except for a mass of cliches which for the most part through the media of pop songs are just foisted on them by middle-aged entrepreneurs and exploiters who should know better. When we start thinking that pop music is close to God, then we'll think pop music is aesthetically better than it is. And it's only the aesthetic value of pop music that we're really concerned with. I mean the only way we can judge Wagner or Beethoven or... or any other composer is aesthetically. We don't regard Wagner or Beethoven nor Shakespeare or Milton as... as great teachers. When we start claiming for Lennon or McCartney or the Maharishi or any other of these pop prophets the ability to transport us to, um, to a region where God becomes manifest then I see red. We're satisfied with our little long playing record, ten pop numbers or thereabouts a side. This is great art, we've been told this by the great pundits of our age. And in consequence why should we bother to learn? There's nothing more delightful than to be told: "You don't have to learn, my boy. There's nothing in it. Modern art? There's nothing in it." When you're told these things you sit down with a sigh of relief: "Thank God I don't have to learn, I don't have to travel, I don't have to exert myself in the slightest. I am what I am. Youth is youth. Pop is pop. There's no need to progress. There's no need to do anything. Let us sit down, smoke our marijuana, an admirable thing in itself but not the end of anything, let us listen to our records and life has become the single moment. And the single moment is eternity. We're with God. Finis! Dettaglio
