Up for Cancelation: Sheet Music

Leftists could not make it more obvious that they are deliberately dismantling Western Civilization. Arguably the pinnacle of Western achievement in the arts is classical music. Therefore, it must be destroyed. Canceling Beethoven isn’t enough. Although it is unlikely, given our current state of cultural decay, another Beethoven may someday come along. So progressives want to ban sheet music:

The University of Oxford is considering proposals that would remove sheet music from its curriculum over woke claims that teaching the Western form of musical notation has roots in “colonialism” and “complicity in white supremacy”.

Rappers don’t need sheet music to hop around grunting obscenities, so in the name of musical equity, sheet music must go.

The music department at the prestigious and ancient university has seen calls to remove music notation from the curriculum as professors seek to focus less on white European heritage and culture, according to documents seen by The Telegraph.

If you don’t agree that sophisticated music must be abolished, you don’t care about the feelings of black people.

The Oxford academics went on to pronounce that teaching the piano or conducting orchestras could cause “students of colour great distress” as the skills involved are closely tied to “white European music”.

However, banging missionaries’ femurs on hollow logs instead of performing symphonies may be seen as cultural appropriation.

Professors at the university said that the classical music which is taught at Oxford, which includes Beethoven, Mozart, and Schubert, among others, is too focused on “white European music from the slave period”.

It doesn’t matter if any great composer ever owned a slave, or that European music predates the Atlantic slave trade. If white people did it, it must be abolished.

What will be taught instead of great music?

In response to student demands “arising from international Black Lives Matter demonstrations,” the Oxford faculty is also considering placing a heavier emphasis on “non-Eurocentric” musical traditions such as Hip-Hop and Jazz, as well as “African and African Diasporic Musics” and “Global Musics”.

They want more than to loot Target and burn down police stations. Black Lives Matter militants will not be done with civilization until not a single brick rests atop another. The liberal establishment enthusiastically implements this agenda.

No one needs an expensive university to learn how to listen to meaningless noise. But that doesn’t matter if the point of paying for a degree from an elite university is not to learn, but to receive accreditation as a member of the ruling class.

Great universities, like museums, are entrusted as caretakers of the most precious thing that has ever existed, Western Civilization. They have betrayed this trust to the last extreme.

If they follow their ideology to its logical conclusion, liberals will soon ban reading and writing. Eventually, they may ban walking upright in favor of going on all fours.
