Billy Bragg: Let us decide how to exploit our own music

Sometimes there are words that really reverberate with people. What Thomas Jefferson wrote in the preamble to the U.S. Constitution is one. I think Barack Obama’s disquisition on race in America is another.

Still, it’s worth a serious hearing.
