Why are songwriters important?
A good song can help you feel someone else's feelings.
That's called, "empathy."
Lack of empathy is at the root of the world's biggest problems.
War. Poverty. Intolerance. Violence.
So songwriters have the ability to create, on demand,
the one thing the world needs most: empathy.
That makes songwriters some of the most valuable people
on the planet. Because at will, they produce this elusive,
ethereal resource that changes the world.
