I come out against some kinds of music
Regular readers of my blog (well there may be some) will know that I am keen on music. I was shocked though to read on the Guardian's science blog about the military use of music. Some of the soldiers interviewed for a study said that music could make them do inhuman things. I have also read about soldiers using violent computer games.
Update, 23 October 2009: see today's blog entry from the Amnesty press team about music used as an ingredient of torture.
