In Verdi And/Or Wagner (2011), Peter Conrad observes that ‘Hollywood… adheres to the customary division between the two composers: Wagner is a terrorist, Verdi a therapist’. The Italian saw art as a comfort for the human spirit. The German revolutionary wanted his music to drive people crazy and burn down Paris.
Hollywood is the therapist. But Hollywood is an evil doctor trying to induce psychic heart failure and nervous breakdown on the white race.

I heard a doctor recommend Mozart for relaxation - but that would spoil their little 'Nordic race are Nazis' thesis.
