A New Type of -ism
1. a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various types of music determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one’s own music is superior and has the right to rule others.
2. a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination. AKA conservatory (joking!)
3. syndrome developed when pop music engages more people than your music and is more commercially viable
