White flag symbolism from '83, anti-violence sentiments articulated at
gigs had more weight than some 80's 3rd rate artist singing fluff
lightweight shallow lyrics and then mouthing off at everyone post
concert to show his true colours.
It seems Bono's strong overt actions, non-conformity with the status
quo, or strongly opinionated verbiage is simply dismissed no matter how
valid or compelling simply because people don't have the attention span
at a concert to care to listen what he has to say. Sure a concert is
great escapism and entertainment, but who is selfish and arrogant, the
people with the short attention spans who couldn't care less about
violence somewhere else, after all it's cutting into the concert time.
