Lauryn Hill has been legally ordered to go to counseling for describing what is basically just capitalism, seen as a conspiracy theory by the court. She did get in trouble for tax evasion too, which she has plead guilty to and will be going to jail for, as well as repaying the sum. She has claimed, as others have in the past, that the music industry exploits musicians (as all industries do of those who actually create the surplus value, so that others can realize that surplus value). According to Opposing Views, Hill has written, “over-commercialization and its resulting restrictions and limitations can be very damaging and distorting to the inherent nature of the individual.” It seems like someone has read her Marx. And during her court trial, she said, “I am a child of former slaves who had a system imposed on them. I had an economic system imposed on me.” So is her court ordered counseling for her “conspiracy theory” actually a conspiracy to cover up the inherent exploitative nature of capitalism???
