for one moment, I’d like you to perform an exercise in selective
attention. Forget every other consideration ó even though they’re fair
and important considerations ó and see if you can acknowledge that a
world in which everyone has free access to every work of creativity in
the world is a better world. Imagine your children could listen to any
song ever created anywhere. What a blessing that would be!”
YES! YES! YES! I imagine this all the time. I’ve even tried
to do it before. I hope that some day it will happen.
I think I’d like to meet David some day.
