No, the government should not rate music. If the government starts rating music, they're saying what people can and can't listen to. That's censorship and a violation to freedom of speech! And if they get away with censoring music, it's just a matter of time before they censor television and books. Kids and their parents should have the right to decide what music kids listen to. The government should stay out of it! It is not their job to boss people around. If it was, then why do we even call ourselves freemen? It is the parent's job and responsibility to teach their children to do good things and it is NONE of the government's business to meddle with our personal lives. No, because it takes away from free speach.
Frequently asked questions
Do we need a system to rate music?
Time and awareness that would take to educate music consumers to these new music rating services, would eventually pay off and bring more music — relevant music - to listeners, and keep everyone happy. This is for you, for the serious music lover, who has a large music collection, and listens to tons of music - constantly. Music influencers who follow evolving new services should take special notice to the introduction of this new service in the music landscape. There is a void today, where the lack of a standard for quantifying and measuring the quality of music is preventing the proper management of music. Listeners are fed with music by recommendations that do not always match, and do not fit everyone.
