Inflammatory message I just received

October 14, 2009

From: susie223 [YouTube]
Subject: DJ AM GOOD RIDDANCE!!!!!

I HOPE HE ROTS IN HELL..FAKE PIECE OF SHIT…DOING A SHOW TO ‘HELP’ ADDICTS, ONLY TO GET TV FAME FOR HIMSELF….GLAD TO BE RID OF HIM…LOSER DRUGGIE..I WISH HIM ETERNAL SUFFERING IN HELL! HEHHEE! HEHEE! WORM FOOD..HEHEEE

Now, I relay this message not to express shock and outrage at the fact someone sent me a hateful email.  I’ve been in the music business for 10 years.  It happens.  On some level, I’m giving Susie exactly what she wants by shining a light on her.  She’s seeking a reaction from me based on my loose association with DJ AM.  She really just craves attention, and I get that.  But I actually said “damn” aloud when I read this one on my BlackBerry a few minutes ago.  What’s unsettling to me is this prevailing attitude that individuals who make mistakes in their personal lives are inherently “bad” people.  I’m really trying to understand why this viewpoint seems to dominate our culture.  Is it because people feel better about themselves when they project their own shortcomings onto others?  It all just reeks of insecurity to me.  I know I’m not perfect, so the last thing I would do is judge someone else.  Who the hell am I to condemn another human being?  Wishing suffering upon someone somehow doesn’t seem more noble to me than giving into temptation.  In my limited time hanging out with Adam and chatting with him online, my impression was that he was a generally good person who made some bad choices.  Honestly, who hasn’t?  Before you point your finger at someone else, I really think you need to take a look in the mirror and ask yourself what your own contribution to the world is.

I realize I run the risk of sounding just as preachy as Susie here.  I guess I’m just perplexed by the whole idea that people believe they can objectively determine the relative worth of another person, and even find joy in the knowledge that someone else has self-destructed.  If the goal is better humanity, is that really the appropriate means by which to achieve it?  Maybe someone can offer some insight.
