A humanist would criticize the song “Ain’t no rest for the Wicked” by Cage the Elephant because the it points out all peoples bad qualities and has no good morals.
In all the verses it takes situations of bad people. How they do things that are ‘wicked’. He encounters a sex workers and thieves. This song doesn’t show punishment for the bad, but says it’s just how people are. “I saw a preacher man in cuffs, He'd taken money from the church, He'd stuff his bank account with righteous Dollar bills” this line is the only proof of punishment for the bad.
Also, it shows no good morals. It mainly brings up all the bad ones. Thievery and prostitution are both part of what would be considered some of the worst things to do. The song mainly states people will do wrong and nothing can be done about it. In the song, after telling of all the bad morale people it states “Because I know we're all the same, Oh yes we all seek out to satisfy those thrills” Saying no one has good morals.
Thus why a humanist would dislike the song “Ain’t no rest for the Wicked” by Cage the Elephant.
