In this TED lecture, Alain de Botton urges atheists to use song and repetition, to speak to emotional needs, instead of just lecturing and debating ideas.

What music would you like to hear repurposed to celebrate and cope with the real world? Bernice Johnson Reagon's White House performance gives me chills every time. I think we could use powerful music like this to help us face the economic, health, and political challenges of a planet spiraling into Climate Destabilization and global depression.
