Example text

In fact, all of the elements of my hypothesis are present in it: music as the eliminator of violence, the usage of which is exchanged for money; the breaking of the contract; the reconversion of music into an instrument of violence against children. Money appears here as the sower of death, shattering the social unity that had been restored through music. To my way of thinking, music appears in myth as an affirmation that society is possible. That is the essential thing. Its order simulates the social order, and its dissonances express marginalities.
