The big lie about capitalism is that everyone can be rich. That’s impossible. Capitalism works only if the vast majority of the population are kept poor enough to never quit working, are kept poor enough to accept distasteful jobs society cannot function without. If everyone were a millionaire, who would empty the trash or repair the sewers? It follows that the poorer the general population is made, the greater the worth of the money held by the wealthy, in terms of the lives which may be bought and sold with it.

The tricky part about growing up in a nostalgia-soaked culture is that, while there are lots of people to emulate, there’re also lots of people to live up to. So many young musicians seem burdened by the weight of all that came before, which can be called up and rewatched at any time of the day on YouTube. Amy Winehouse proved that you could not only draw from the past, but also use it to create something completely new. And three years after she died, an album she made back in 2006 sounds as urgent, political, potent, and tragic as anything in your parents’ record collection.
