Ever heard the phrase "the medium is the message"? In the case of the rap in "End The Fed," the anti-Federal Reserve music video below, the medium is actually, well, distracting. (Via Reason)
An artist named Sleuth has hit YouTube with a song that mixes classical economics theory, the politics of Ron Paul and even a reference to economist and housing expert Robert Shiller.
The song also ventures into the fringe with terms like "Nazi-Pelosi" (referring to Nancy Pelosi) and "Obama-umism." It also seems have more than a bit of vague antisemitism. (Check out the shot of George Soros as Presidential puppeteer)
More from the song:
"End the Fed, End the Fed
Coin gold and silver when the Fed is dead
A free market money that the founders meant
the best way to reign in the government"
Or take, for example, lines like these: "In the old days they had a bowl of dust, these days we have a belt of rust."
