Hessianism will only be a culture once people get over the idea that finding the best ten bands, declaring that a culture, and ignoring the rest is not legitimate.
We can't include everyone.
We also can't be a culture that people participate in from 15-28 and then abandon. But as long as we're part of pop culture, youth culture, etc. that's going to be the case.
People hate this forum for:
(a) Legitimate reasons: false elitism, perceived insularity, the tendency of people here to be somewhat vindictive in correcting others, and also to be throw up complex objections to any simple assertion (I tired of this shit myself)
(b) Illegitimate reasons: fear of real elitism, fear of being pushed beyond comfort zones, basically, fear of that someone else knows something they don't.
