33 1/3 revolutions late

Contrary to the battering lyricist's Randian objectivist to bleeding-heart libertarian evolution, Power Windows contains the seeds that belie this range of view to offer one of the best arguments for anarchy — namely, "The Big Money", about the inevitable effect of the accumulation of capital, "Manhattan Project", lamenting the loss of virtue in science as the experiment is directed from above, and "Territories", which sees how these cultivate nothing but a reversion to tribe over community.

And if that wasn't unpopular enough, I got a hunk of Neil's irrational side, with a paraphrase that keeps it as snide: Big money got a soul.
